Say that phrase no one will admit they love.
Say it as if you are proud to say it: I don’t care.
Say it with your whole body as you turn away from today.
Say it symphonically, as a string quartet might play it: I don’t care.
So much to think about when you stare at everything all day long.
So many people you don’t know want to discuss all this. Say it: I don’t care.
Say it as if it could cure the poisoned air, as if our need to weigh in
has turned such an admission into Magick: I don’t care.
As if your opinion matters without action, if it matters at all with
or without action. Let your tone of voice be your action. Say it: I don’t care.
Give it a place beyond this one. Put it out, free yourself.
Once free, you will fly. Fly now. Say it: I don’t care.
Eat better, sleep better, be more at rest while awake; make love
without overthinking. Stop fretting and say, I don’t care.
You ask: but how should I push through the blood in the streets?
Dye your legs red and blend in with the surge. Say it: I don’t care.
