WE WILL SEND GROCERY WORKERS TO SPAS
WE WILL SEND YOUR MOM TO A SPA
WE WILL MOVE WITH ELATION AND BLISSFUL VULNERABILITY THROUGH A CROWDED NIGHTCLUB AND DELIGHT IN THE SWEAT OF STRANGERS ON OUR SKIN
WE WILL CUDDLE IN A HUMAN BALL PIT
WE WILL PAY OUR CARETAKERS OR BETTER YET WE WILL PAY EVERYONE UNIVERSAL BASIC INCOME
WE WILL LIFT UP DISABLED AND QUEER COMMUNITIES WHO CREATED THE TECHNOLOGIES FOR US TO SURVIVE
WE WILL REMEMBER OUR BODIES AS SELF HEALING SYSTEMS
WE WILL KNOW SOCIETY AS A WHOLE, INTERSECTED ORGANISM, WHOSE HEALTH WE ATTEND TO, PROVIDE FOR, AND FIGHT FOR
