occupation

Where do we stand, America?

You
and me

No matter how long or hard
I’ve tried to stand my ground,
somehow the land has shifted
and engulfed me

I’ve learned
that this
is the way it is

But I’ve resisted
belief that this is
the way it will always be

And now, it feels like we
are so close this time, America,
to that something different

I learned from the trees
that new growth requires
some kind of falling

I’m waiting for you
at the edge, America

Come

Fall
with
me.
