Air Quality of 2020

© GB Swann

Fucking political poison in the air.
Political poison in the form of respiratory droplets.
Everyone has it. Right, left, it doesn’t matter. Political poison polarizing people beyond belief.
Air poison. Brain poison. Country poison. The 4th branch of the government.
Let’s fight hate with hate. Ignorance with ignorance, because you know what type of people live over there: THOSE PEOPLE.
Let’s play and shove each other on the playground.
Just do it from 6 feet away.
Call the cops. No don’t call the cops. Grab your gun instead.
What gun? We legislated them away. Only the police have guns…we trust them.
I can’t breathe with my neighbors mask of judgement over my face.
I can’t breathe in this thick political air.
I can’t breathe from the hate levels of Democrats or Republicans.
I can’t breathe because I’m Black.
I can’t breathe because I’m White.
I can’t breathe because I’m LatinX.
I can’t breathe because I’m a Cop.
I can’t breathe from the chokehold of authoritarianism from the race of Blue Lives.
Now please. Everyone stop and fucking breathe.
Before we all lose our life breath.
We are running out of ventilators.
We are killing ourselves.
We are.

We all have but one choice for breathing- to breathe the same air. Can we make it available to everyone?

Do you hate me more for being a Southern white male, having a Black brother, or a Latina wife?

Is there a vaccine for hate?

How can we unite the States?
