Let’s use those 7 CDC-banned words in poems.

*

Once, ours was a world originally
diverse, originally transgendered— all

different beings fused and whole before
the artificial split: our entitlement to the fruits

of the garden revoked and colonized by false
documents and deeds, the growing fetus

of perverse overseers’ greed, which bloated
into a many-headed beast with many mouths

spewing false and uncouth argument, unwilling
to admit truth is science-based, evidence-based.

They want nothing better than to burn the fields,
fan flames of hate, put idols (themselves) in place

of our sacred monuments. What they want: our wages, rights,
hearts, hopes: what we will never willingly give them.
