A Poem on the Passing of RBG

Upon the Passing of RBG

Stunned, but not
surprised, and the first
thing I thought of upon news
of Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s passing
was my own mother, long gone,
the first feminist activist I knew,
and loved, loudly forcefully
arguing demanding articulating
for recognition of the rights
of all women to the cluster
of us in our small space

We listened
We heard
We changed
but did this country?

Will we still?

Peace (before it gets worse),
