A Poem For Liberals Afraid That Democracy Dies In Darkness

Persephone Erin Hudson

Not that it should take

bearing witness

to the cancerous autophagy

& tumorous autocannibalism

of capitalism and whiteness

to revolt against the state

of things.

The mass graves

from sea to shining sea

should be enough.

The snake still slaughters

when it is not devouring its own tail,

after all.

That should be enough.

That should be enough.

When will it be enough?
