The dress rehearse empathy
by Rona Nushi
When the sky begins to plunge and the air around you burdens,
when the clouds fight with swords and your veins begin to drain,
when the world sputters ceaselessly and your soul feels foreign,
put your ingenuity as a cuiress and let the world know your name.
Non of species lacks a heart, non of them denies love,
be a shameless paramour, share your passion as you go,
if it takes to be an alien, be an alien of your own,
think of fear as non-existent and walk your life as you know.
