free?

Standard

oh what to seek?

equality

what lies interior
lies dormant

so write it

cannot write equality

or even

understanding

what image what metaphor

could capture

the absence and presence of equality

or maybe the hope for
being treated as an equal, and
with respect

does not exist

and why?

too archaic a concept?

too vague an image?

maybe one can only
hold dormant
the flotsam and jetsam
of the mind

why write
when
fighting seems
to be
the new way?

I do not know.
But I will unearth the dormant
and set my thoughts
free,
looking toward equality.
