Us
Protean
Shapeshifting
Chameleon
Molecular
Adaptations

Bending
Backgrounds
Worshipping
Stratospheres
Moons

Polymorphic

Multiform

Leaping for
What’s good
Foundations
Pooling through

Reorganizing self
Emptying a shelf
What is left
Without belief

They had
Shapeshifting too
They didn’t tell though

Because some ways
Have more words
& some people
Have more access

What is shared
Is far away
& what is there
Is hard to say

Because justice
Is too often delayed

You can never say
We weren’t there
Because the
Nowhere
That’s enforced
Is somewhere
