Poetry, Politics

write (to remain silent)

to refuse is
to remain silent, side-stepping, spectating, is
to applaud, approve, acquit (aloof), is
to stain hands with more than ink.

to refuse is
to scratch out pain, circle chain,
not think, but blink wink smile,
please not right now, but in a while,
when bruises fade and they’ve made you – file,

please, write now.
