That was the WORST poetry i read within the last 2 years!!!

It’s been a difficult, tense few days for many in the US and around the world. But even — if not especially — when words fail us in our everyday lives, there’s still poetry. Here are four powerful voices on the uncertainty of freedom, the complicated process of healing, and more.


Ra, “Chaos?

focusing on food,

She’s ignoring the noise,
the flickering lights,
the customers in mismatched clothes,

the cleaning supplies,
the smells,
the traffic outside,
the door without locks.

She’s smiling,

she tries to see
the freedom.

the chaos.
