“but i won’t call it “a new normal.” there’s nothing normal about it, & i won’t allow myself to commit that act in language. i refuse to accept this current hell, & i don’t believe in the concept of better hells.

“better than yesterday” is a start, but it’s not enough. i want us to reconcile our pasts & presents so our futures might be something vastly different from now. the normal i will accept for my tomorrows, whenever they come – if they come – is beyond surviving; more abundant & hospitable than being heard, seen, or recognized as human; is life with, not life despite. i wish for a peaceful sleep tonight. tomorrow, to breathe will be better, but my hope is for something far beyond breath.”
