Jay is still alone, afraid, overwhelmed. We are trying to create precarious safety after too many broken promises, too many failed plans.

Too many dead and dying disabled and divergent people.

Are we dying of covid? Or restricted access? Abelism? Discrimination?

Rejection?

Broken hearts?

Weariness.

Some days we fight with everything we have

Some days we lie back, numb, broken. Surrender to the pain and the exhaustion. Let the planet turn and the stars wheel overhead. Weep for our friends, for friends we haven’t even known. For people like us. Let go.

And tomorrow

Who knows what comes with dawn?

We wait

Watch

Witness

Love.
