you once seemed very
important but now you are
another four years

black mask gun barrel
silhouetted under a
zapatista moon

his GAP™ shirt stained with
the blood of el salvador
does not weigh him down

the truth has fled from
the north while the south reeks
of violation

big white s.u.v.
edges into the crosswalk
no room for my feet

half the planet has
never made a call other
half is cellular

seeds now mutant can
no longer comprehend how
evolution works

the way i see it
unemployment insurance
is subsidized arts

my awareness has
been cleared of all charges but
told not to leave town

one hundred dollar
pair of sneakers cannot help
me to just do it
(a niku?)

i have seen the best
minds of my generation
destroyed by blindness
