I'M GONNA NEED YOU
I'M GONNA NEED YOU TO DO THE WORK.
Your feet are in the soul of community
We live here together
ALL THE ROADS CONNECT
Why are you still sitting down?
MOVE MOVE MOVE
Listen to your body
Eat your greens
Grow your own if you can
Grab a shovel, start digging
Deal with your bullshit
IT COSTS YOU NOTHING TO HELP HER GROW
I'm gonna need you to oak for the ivy
I'm gonna need you to realize you are your own god
I'm gonna need you to pray
Do the hard thing & better thing & release release release
Slip into the port in Procida
Recycle. Fucking recycle.
Remove yourself from the problem
I'm gonna need you to swallow some change
It's a magic trick
In all forms
I'm gonna need you to appreciate variety.
I'm gonna need you to help unlock the cages
And vote with your dollar
You get the responsibility of discernment
I'm gonna need you to use it
Love, honor, respect your family does not equate to perpetuating each of their values
Step out of line.
I'm gonna need you to get excited about bugs in your yard
I'm gonna need you to stop spraying chemicals
I'm gonna need you to get used to tall grass
Repair your clothes
Eat your insecurities
Hold on to detachment until your knuckles paste & you're only sweaty, slippery palms
RIP YOUR HEAD OUT OF YOUR ASS
Tangle yourself in your own hair
Befriend your fingerprints
Eat your own cake
Talk to yourself in the mirror
Read those books, & write your own.
I'm not asking for more than your best.
Watch me read the whole poem here.
