Riddle: “What is full of emptiness?”
RE: Roadblocks to Justice?
5 ways to make the new year truly yours,
It’s free! Just like your tax return!
Today is your lucky day–
Roller skating for two,
Thunderstorms & Floods,
Your Voice, Needed Now!
Unique, tidy, organized trends
Illegal, Immoral & Anti-women.
About that scary mess…
Welp. I’m stumped.
Nearly half of Americans don’t recycle their beauty.
Reset! Clean Up!
It’s now or never to have 3X the impact.
Gift this to yourself,
Tomorrow is too late.
Feeling stressed, Jacquelina?
You don’t have to be!
Lock the cellar door,
Elect sustainable leadership,
Don’t let the internet spook your kids!
The piece Safe Bathroom by Lemmy Renee is a Flarf poem designed and composed to replicate the chaos of their thoughts while standing in a crowded room and how they’ve managed to overcome their social anxiety and panic disorder as triggers arise in those environments. By searching the words “safe” and “bathroom” into their abandoned childhood email account to word collage this piece, Lemmy brings order to their disorder, reclaiming years of being undiagnosed and having to learn to cope without completely understanding why. Bathrooms are sanctuaries— a safe haven from noise and expectation and a place to go if you just need a minute to compose, continue on. Safe Bathroom offers the same understanding and solace of those moments.
