Empty Chair

Unknown
Swirling around you
Never bound to you
but binding you
Papers climb
screens bulge
their
square eyes
at you
they’re bright
and blinding
and you’re still
not getting it
art is not art
on display
thinking you know
who’s gay
or
a color
or
a hijab
being in high heels
that dig holes
in the back
of your feet
art exists for the sake of
art
expression
that it would not
die without
you
but live much longer
than you
because it’s expressed
get up
and do
something
real
Be an empty chair
know that
you’re
never
coming
back
to this
unless you’re ready
to die
