L[a{bled}]

If you must label a human being as something

they are not,

and what

they are is – obviously, you dolt!

not a pretty designer label

designed to label into convenience

and make of ingenuity and love a token

re-

sponse decided once to be enough,

then label them as abled,

not bled of all activity.

If ambition is good enough for schools

and rules, and aspiration means

more than just an unjust democratic

sense of freedoms inscribed by a breathing-in

and breathing-out of stupid silly super-

fickle choice, then no one – but no one

must ever be de-

fined by the charging bull of societal

convenience that is the label

of dis

abled.
