Fear and Anger

You are so scared and angry
how can we make art, how can we dance
when you are stiff with fear and frustration, anger frothing
tired, tired from all that fear and anger
to contain it, hold it, nourish it, keep it from spilling
spilling like a bad chemical mess
burning and burning
fear and anger burning a hole through your stomach
through your heart
burn a hole and leave behind
cancer, lumps and diaspora
“we couldn’t get it all”
fear and anger at the biology
the questions, the confusion, the ethics of which life
a life of fear and anger
where anything creative has to be torn out
pulled out
ripped out by the roots
might as well forget to breathe
if you can’t write
fear and anger
knotting muscles and locking jaws
teeth bared and a low growl
of fear and anger
