The library shelves
are in complete disarray
for renovation

an apt metaphor
for this—our current moment
turned to distraction

We know what is right
but we don’t know where or how
it will be conveyed

So in the meantime
keep on alphabetizing
to distract yourself

from the real work of
putting it back in order
as it’s never been—

The revolution can’t wait
