Of Liberty or Hell on Earth

Of half measures
and aggressive acceleration

Of fine lines
and crossed paths

the sand strewn between us
no longer valued the same as that
squeezed in our own palms

and there will be tears
or blood
or both

but some have said
the tree’s roots cannot grow
without it

Of sovereign hearts
and quarantine centers

Of splintered contracts
and fresh ink spilled
