www. it

There are no picket lines
no marches
no sits ins to stand ups no walk outs,
protest-less, prowess-less,
no cry of anguish
or shaken head of disbelief
just a whirring calm of selfies
and pretense of bold exclamations
about some such thing or other.

Is that what the decade will remember of us?
Short-lived boasts or blurbs about nothing in particular?

I long for the rally
the demonstrators
the do.
I long for the movements
that meant a move to something…


But I, like the others simply hash-tag my days.
