I do not have words.

I have only feelings

swirling around

like moth wings in blenders

    bloody and broken

still fluttering

when you take your finger

off of the button.


And there are millions

of blenders spinning

around me

with millions of moths

that keep beating their wings

because they cannot give up

as long as they have a pulse.

*Author’s Note: Orlando is my home. In the wake of what has happened here, we have seen a community come together to love and assist one another when we have needed it most. The countless displays of support from around the world have touched me in ways I cannot describe. This has been an emotionally trying week but I believe we will not only make it through this but will emerge stronger and more unified than ever before.
