An Untitled Occupy Poem

(dedicated to the members the
Occupy Wall Street Disability Caucus
who participated in the
Occupy Gracie Mansion Action today)

At 10:15 this evening,
a gimp sister’s Facebook feed
told me she got arrested for crashing
Mayor Bloomberg’s party to
honor the Americans with Disabilities Act
held 10 days late at Gracie Manson,
along with a woman I’ve called
mama since we met over 15 years ago.

I read
about citations,
court dates,
and arrestees’ wheelchairs
tried to metal poles
for reason I can’t fathom.

I smile.
Think, “Go you!”
Grateful for social networking
for letting me know
they are safe.
