JulyPoWriMo 5

Reminders from a year ago stronger 
now that the identifiable glow
still lights up on a pixelated screen
intimating how far we have to go
to make reality more than a dream
history having had its eyes on you
dares not look away for fear of missing
the part in the story where it gets told
reframing figures to make a new show
the world marched upside down to perform in
turns out it still spins before it begins
to create the world we all belong in
the work still takes place outside of this box
stories are the key that breaks all the locks
