Lotta

I wanna Lotta love
I wanna voice with a Lotta warmth
I wanna Lotta houses
I wanna Lotta sweet sounds
I wanna Lotta loving hands making loving things
I wanna Lotta voices from different tongues within earshot
I wanna Lotta songs
I wanna Lotta laughter
I wanna Lotta honor
I wanna Lotta respect
I wanna Lotta peace
I wanna Lotta community
I wanna Lotta smiles
I wanna Lotta homes
I wanna Lotta culture
I wanna Lotta togetherness

I don’t wanna Lotta condos
I don’t wanna Lotta rent
I don’t wanna Lotta forgetting
I don’t wanna Lotta regretting
I don’t wanna Lotta evictions
I don’t wanna Lotta displacement
I don’t wanna Lotta speculation
I don’t wanna Lotta harassment
I don’t wanna Lotta nightmares
I don’t wanna Lotta fear
I don’t wanna Lotta pulling us apart
I don’t wanna Lotta nonsense

I wanna Lotta soup in my pot
I wanna Lotta music in my living room
I wanna Lotta sunlight coming through my window
I wanna Lotta hugs from friends
I wanna Lotta moonlight when it’s dark

I want my staircase to
Sound like a Lotta piano keys

I wanna Lotta love
