the root

When
Can
I
Stop citing history,
The Facts,
the truth.

And begin
To
Have
 a
  Conversation

About race
& class
& religion
& gender
& ability
Or who i sleep with..

When will the minds of today
Live with the knowledge
That
What-EVER-we-do is a product
Of our theft
 And murder
  And erasure
   Of
     Indigenous peoples

That we're not the first
Or only
To love this land...

That our benefit
Is
Not second cousin
Twice removed
Nor the parent of an aunt
through marriage,

But a stem cut from the root of humanity

When..

When..

When
