Freedom Attack

Freedom is everything. This month I wrote with the ancestors. I took the freedom to dig into the past and find the history that made us free, at least in this country anyway.

Freedom Attack
By Sadie Rosgen

I see you
sitting there
your face waxed by your iMac
huffing behind your lit screen
unseen
seen
unseen
faking your aside
snide
online/offside
homesick feeling
it’s standing in front of you
go ahead
feel it through your fingers there
I’ll wait
past your perfect repulsion
for the human race
relax your face
open the door
scowl
how intimately fowl
grandma taught you better
our elders died here
not for your fear
get on board
your mortality is on retainer
