…CUT OFF FROM OUR REALITY…

POETRY IS NOT A LUXURY — Audre Lorde

Neither is Health, Exercise, and the Outdoors.

Sitting, Walking, and Thinking is not a luxury

Not even not thinking is a luxury.

Nope, a DREAM is not a luxury.

Hope, Faith, and Love are not luxuries,

I would say they are necessities.

As air, water, and gravity.

…If you think gravity is not a necessity,

try doing without it for just one hour…
