come to obsidian {propaganda} (29/30)

prompt: write a review

propaganda distributed on earth during the sixth century of racialized global class warfare. dismissed by many as escapist fantasy…but not all.

forget that fertile place called home
it was precious
perhaps it was beautiful
but it was gone before we could love it
it would never be ours

come to obsidian

there is a blackness
which glitters with new life
where the days are long enough to learn each other
and the nights bright enough to dream wild

come to obsidian

there is abundance
when our bellies are full we lay around, laughing,
naming and unnaming our brown skins
forgetting ownership

come to obsidian

with no weapons
we break and mend each other’s hearts
we tear up the soil
we destroy barriers to life
never each other
we will love whoever you are

come to obsidian

there is freedom
we are learning to be human
it is not easy
it is exquisite
it is evolution

come to obsidian

relinquish your forever wars
release your always grief
your constant struggle
and ever righteous rage

come to obsidian

earth is an ancient broken promise
supremacy cannot see you
it will not love you until you have gone
we offer only one commitment
we will love whoever you are
today, here, you

come to obsidian
