This is resistance, too

I bought this book to record fascism

the subtle disintegration of our democracy
dissolving like limestone in water

drip

by

drip

until there are only stalactites of horror
a cathedral cavern hollowed out by hate.

But tonight
I tore out the pages
filled with fascism
so I could fill it with poetry

Do you like poetry?
I asked my love.
More than I like fascism,
he answered.

This is resistance, too.
