Prioritise community and self-love.

                                                               I am at the equator:
                                                        bare beach breathes without
                                                    shirtless children, but sandcastles
                                                           trains rained to run without
                                                    passengers, but fire extinguishers
                                                        stalls sell nothing but endless
                                                              racks of stalling masks

                                                         hands with nothing to touch.

                                                                  equal and at zero
                                                                  wings and the sun
                                                           nothing and with everything.
