Mind Over Merch

Mind Over Merch

The brain is
a creature of habit.

Decency does not grow naturally
from a tribe of vigilantes.
Always a grudge,
Always another betrayal,
A tumor of fear,
a razor blade buried
in a lollipop.

Unless-
the bruises sweeten
the soft flesh
of the fruit,

Unless each harvest
bears some semblance
to just desserts
even if just for optics,

Unless the heart defeats
the vicious army of the mind
and chooses to bet on
trust over trepidation.

Unless you see my liberation
As reliant on yours,
Your tshirts and empathy
Might as well be ether.
