THE POEM : Displacement


Dis • a prefix used to normalise distance, discord, dissonance, disrespect

Displace • to use a prefix violently

Displacement • to move something that isn't yours to touch

Displacementification • to pluck something with dirty, sticky fingers

Displacementificationario • a global scenario which profits off of said fingers

Displacement • maybe a house, never a home

Dis. place. ment everything to me

But in you, I find a fortress

Built by us: brick by brick

With no prefix.
