Volume

This is not an episode of hate.

If you can’t speak what is right,
just keep it to yourself.
And don’t delight bad things
in your mind.

Our hearts speak volume
of different representations.

My hands write poetry
of different angsts and anxiety,
cheer and solidarity, red or yellow
or blue, lemonade, fire, or kazoo.
