Even


When
Aziz Ansari
references
Lemonade
it means
he is a cherished supporter
of anyone with a thirst
for something
that tastes
just a little bit better.
just a little bit better
is all you need
to feel new
just a little bit better is all
she needs to know
that even Rupert Murdoch
can get lucky
while she walks on
the gala carpet alone and free
but even
Jerry Hall knows that
twitter too
does not last
forever
and then we revisit Trump
supposedly the bump
that throws all
the hump
that everyone can get over
but alas
every jack in the box
must have his day
and her day
will not always seem to be tomorrow
so while we wait
let’s remember
that anyone with thirst
will be cherished
and supported
as long as the air stays
moist with anticipation
of a meltdown
to the ground
no hope left untravelled
unborn
or forgotten

Beyonce Says


Beyonce says
Intuition
Denial
Anger
Apathy
Emptiness
Accountability
Reformation
Forgiveness
Resurrection
Hope
Redemption
but I think it’s
denial first
and then there are no stages
as such
just
forgiveness
since
we all who keep going
in it
are going in it
because
we’ve forgiven them
even if we won’t admit it
what allows you to keep going
other than
acceptance
denial is real
but it does not kill you
unless
you kill yourself
at which point
you’ll have to admit
that you never forgave
your injurer
you let them be stronger
than you
and then there is
no Lemonade
you’re just dying
of thirst
