Sunday and always



many are busy this weekend

asking people to get out and vote

i am busy checking for survival gifts

i need to find how to donate a goat

while some choose to sleep in

on voting day

somewhere in the world

people are killed for trying to have their say

not entirely sure

how we got to so many factions

in our most intimate moments

so many distractions

in the midst

of senseless noise

i can’t sometimes hear

my own child’s voice

i  slowly sip my cardamon chai

close my eyes and bite into my avocado toast

realize that on this sunday and always

meeting you is what i want the most
