Fire (fiyah) on the dancefloor today at 2:15 PM (EST); sync up if you’re bringing the gas, because the only water allowed is what you see in the background or what you ingest for hydration. Today, like everyday, I (we) dance for the P’s and J’s: peace, plurality, justice, and joy. Sunshine and laughter. – Reza Rites

Can you see
The moon
If your skies
Are on fire
Lit by bombs
Built in Rhode Island
And accelerated
With and by
Hypocrisy
Greed
And hegemony?

Can you seek
The Moonlight
For answers and riddles
Or are you buried
Under a bunker
That doubles
As your self-made
Grave
And family dining
Room?
