rebellion

 

the uprising has begun.

your feet held captive

in the Grand Place of the bed.

demanding  warmth, your skin insists

on close attendance to the rain.

as the mind negotiates

with the rebels,

your body joins

their cause, rewriting constitution.

in the future a small plaque

will not mark this history.

but you know it already.
