sing sing death house

This house is Korean
labeled upside down
garbled junk for useless hands †
and my trigger finger is hapless †
but again, Korean    
in some former regime †
†  
they shipped us this shit †
bubble-wrapped and dead †
off boats made of matchsticks †  
sparking lighters from... †
†  
you get †
where I'm going with this †
†  
model Americans †  
living in foreign soup cans †
smelling like Texas beans †
because we too like to live †
dangerously. †
†  
I guess we would remember †  
all the plastic memories †
cooped up in Japanese jail †
†  
splayed out, splintered †
wearing dust jackets †
not fooling anybody †
†  
and you †
my Kamikaze coffin †
you are nothing †
but a smug imitation †
calling yourself God
