Emphasis




society has some funny ideas
it's forgotten how to laugh at

if consent is weak,
what is critique?

difference is a matter
of emphasis

I reject awe,
prefer delight

of the free things I will borrow
any and all without restriction

stitching bits
for practicality and fashion

once coddled,
we cultivate distress

a siren sonata
alarm album

no other music
seems relevant now

to be something
say something

I've nostalgia for how
words were used

in my youth
