Who made the world?

Who made late-stage, racist capitalism?

Who made the sourdough starter?

the one that has flung itself onto my kitchen counter?

the one that is eating sugar out of my hand.

Who made the homeschool schedule with over 400 links?

Who made bail last night?

I don’t know exactly what a prayer is.

I do know how to fall down in the streets,

how to kneel down in the streets,

how to be idle and tweet, how to scroll through the rants,

which is what I have been doing all day.

Tell me, what is it you plan to do

with your one wild and precious quarantine?
