. I refuse to live in fear.
I’m flying from my state to the next.
It will be 26 by the end of the month.
More than half but I’ll keep travelling.
I give myself extra time
to get through the extra security
but that’s all.
I’m not changing my life.
I do look around myself more.
I’m a little more vigilant or aware.
I carry pepper spray.
But I still don’t have a cell phone.
This is right now. This is my today.
Itâ€™s not much but
Maybe someone will write a poem about this.
