The threat, of course,
is that the present moment might be choked out
But the challenge, of course,
is that we are to allow the present moment to be overcome
The empire sings the songs of death
and chants the mantra of anxiety;
We have been trained to move with fear
and choose based on scarcity and greed and paranoia.
who won’t leave us be–
even when we’ve asked you to–
You call us to a state over overcomeness
And we accept.
We accept even though, at this moment,
the threat is very real.
