Weekly feature by: Cathy Cavallone

we are matter –
solid, liquid, gas
corpuscles, innumerable, teaming
for a place, a face –
we are madder, madder than hell
and we are not going to take it anymore
we matter,
Black lives madder more than white –
atom climbing atom
cylindrical homicide of matter –
tooth, hair, meat, bone, blood –
dominoes of matter, then madder
of course toppling,
this cube of earth
that diorama of diarrhea
that thing
that matters
