THE DEBATE

by Jake Reynolds

In response.

This is not rightness        or righteousness
the wrongness of            your terror
let’s say we say        something terrible
say we say sing,    find        the music in
nothing or every-                thing…

This is not vocalised            you know us
what we think is really        no different
until you turn                     around
on the dawn you promised         to witness
because of the breeze                on your face

This is not rehearsed            unless you count
my whole life                me as an actor
our whole life                us as actors
we promise relief        of a very singular kind
it is obtained by us                you can apply here
