letting my freak flag fly

unnamedletting-my-freak-flag-fly
i was talking
with aunt bea
about
a demonstration
on
the
illegitimate presidency
of trump
how a group
of us
were headed
downtown
next week
to stand in solidarity
against
washington criminals
aunt bea
said
it’s
so easy
to resist
and
rebel
when others
walk beside you
but
the real resistance
is
when you
stand alone
either
in the voting booth
or
in your
personal decisions
to
defy
and
address
the wrongs
that stand
before
you
