CHANGES / by Emily Busch



the morning after

fox news closes their segment

with Bowie's "Changes"


do they realize that

he is a bisexual

hero of all freaks?


I never quite could

understand how so many

can separate their psyches


it's all connected

everything is everything

its my basic rule


you cannot use art  

and expect that true essence

will give itself up


until you honor

the fabric of the lives lived

their splendor and mess
