Talking to Vanessa

Tonight I was talking to Vanessa, the politics professor,

She handles politics with ease, but I feel my chest squeeze.

I feel too small to face it all:

women’s rights,

gay rights,

environmental beliefs,

disaster reliefs,

the poor,

war,

…war,

and so much more.

and still breathe.

I keep my world small and ignore it all.

I don’t Google ‘the world now’

but rather goes straight to “cow”.

I can manage

her food,

her water,

her health,

milk wealth,

and still breathe.
