2020: Year of Self-Protection

The sparrow watched, like the butterfly
Sweeps past your nets, or once caught
Promptly dies.

Like the wild orchid plucked
A sorry beauty deconstructs

Objectify, magnify, idolize
oh my
Capitalize, marginalize, codify
that lie

March to beats that simplify
and deny

Oh no, no, not I.
