They are all just labels he said
See
so easy so right
All the trouble of negotiating humanity
reduced
to a pithy aphorism
that denies the

of the struggle to keep up when
all those labels

knocking us down.
He insists on minimizing
denying
the grinding experience of
a world where labels trump all
Yes so easy when those
labels
aren’t on you.
