Shortness Of Breath

This new year looks much like the old


we are being suffocated

with pillows of power

and prejudice,

hardly hidden,

in the institutions

we were told would protect 

us all.

Some of us

believed it.

But the masks are off now,

forced off the face by lies.

All they hid is exposed.

We know it now

as we look behind the masks.
