P. 20

Your face gets scrunched up just like His, never able to figure out why
the expanses of this prefrontal cortex are a minefield built on indigenous land.
I’m thinking about the subjugation of my people in the name of destiny manifested by cruelty
And trying not to have a panic attack because I might explode and then the cops come chasing violence and i told them
on the phone no cops just EMT please
call my cousin and tell her thank you for being so good
for studying environments, a thousand ways to resuscitate a body of water, a human body made of water is always at risk of drowning
please no cops and my mind sneaks up on itself and there are cops and
there is a panic attack. Lungs arrested
heart racing brain filling with air
of dread and lavender chamomile and adobo—
