Image for the poem the great red road

the great red road

 

the heatís gassy breath
belches into the bedroom
American warmth

bodies and buildings
distorting metal cases
Paris and Beirut

Christian sects cry out
expulsion of immigrants
hired help listening

seal up the borders
refuse homeless refugees
bible meaningless

family portraits
don rich fireplace mantels
foreign ancestors †

fleeing oppression
Ellis Island aliens
hopeful descendants

decades grow older
history is forgotten
new generation

defending their land
assault-rifled hypocrites †
tribal councils laugh † †
