In body and in name
with honor and with shame
by number and by worth
through logic and the absurd
through breath and through pulse
in motion and at rest
through matter and through vacuum
by trial and by test

Oppress yourself

Through organs of sound
through organs of sight
through monitors of temperature
with meters of light
bridges crossing water
bridges crossing land
subterranean rivers seeping through the sand

Oppress yourself

Hanging from the ceiling
eating off the floor
reaching without fear
conquer without force
the lion begins to bleat
the lamb begins to roar
disintegration by the dozens
evaporation by the scores

Oppress yourself
oppress yourselves
