Towards Unowning

I do not recognize 

your

No Trespassing

your 

Do Not Enter

your

Private Property

 

I walk this land

and so do the deer

 

or would 

if you had not

bound it

in wire

removed trees

and

taken space

just one of the many 

resources you

proclaim yours

 

I do not validate 

your

claims

your

signs

your

documents

 

I step over the boundary 

I have been taught to see

that I can identify 

but refuse to credit

 

I fear 

your 

guns

your

dogs

your 

judgement

social and legal

 

but this fear I breathe through

and walk

in spite of you

 

I’m not taking any of your

fucking money
