The War on the Poor
is in full EFF-ECT!
From Frisco and Oakland
To The Phillipines and Iraq

The mouth of the Truck had teeth
Large white porcelin teeth stained with blood
my blood, mi sangri
which dripped down its metal jaws into rivers of solid black rubber
Rubber that became the soles of boots on the feet of marching soldiers

Wheels that shook the earth, mi tierra,
and plowed down the land, mi tierra

Dark turning wheels on my tongue
maybe if I licked their boots they wouldn’t take my home, my car, mi vida
