DAY 18

------------------

no bargaining poetry yesterday
(contray to reports you may have seen)
just lipstick and an annual mammogram
—a return to routine labour—
disrupting picketing and all other work, picturing instead
all-queer medicine: high fashion over high risk. no sentinels.
if i had been thinking in lines, i might've been comforted,
The University: "business as usual"
The Union: "no concessions"
