Her voice cracked a bit.
Between sips of water,
jabs at Donald Trump,
Huck Finn outpourings,
and genuine pleas for knowledge,
"Curiosity is insubordination in its purest form"
I would rather be insubordinate
I would rather be uncomfortable knowing
than complacently conforming
I would rather dumpster dive for hope
and to resuscitate imagination
than let passion flail
and dreams suffocate
