tiny tomorrow manifesto/ Justin Hong

after Arundhati Roy

 

[tomorrow’s instruction manual is nestled inside this very if.]

justplaintired, bonefizzy, and looking past yourself, you’re

 

learning how to make happy, freight happy

with things that haven’t  happened yet. in

 

this sort of invention, the see-do poetics has a

magazine you stuff with a dustcoated heirloom dream.

 

you tug on the trigger and the expired ammu-

nition shatters, linguafranca barrel shatters. does

 

the handheld poetics shatter? it must. joy! but that

is all prepwork. for real step1 is: how to make rubble [hope] count?
