Dark Matter

Let’s get over the fear
of who might be listening and remember
we were born to free speech.

Let’s talk louder.
Let’s not relent at all and talk about everything
at once.  Let’s mention our

bowel movements
in the same breath
as our passionate defense

of the right to violate a law
in pursuit of justice beyond it.
Give our breakfast cereals credit

for insider trading.  Describe our cars
as perfect examples of style so wild
they terrorize the road under them.

Don’t capitulate: overwhelm.
They won’t know what to do
with a firehose narrative.  If by chance

they come for us, let’s laugh at them.
Let’s laugh at them, all of us.  Laughter
is the war they’ll never win.
