Giving People Their Space in Public

The strange sensation of giving space in public
even now don’t give it to me

DON’T

Give me this
and give me my space in public

the space to freely move this body
through the street
engaging in ____ repetition
Repeat this monstrous rhythm
within this entrapped tradition of
moving through the physical space

Give me this because I will gratuitously give you

this space

EVERY _____ TIME


your voices echo
up these walls
and through the subway
halls

I give you

this space

would you kindly give
memine
