it's that the pops occur.
it's that I hear them well.
it's these discussions
about god and the emphatic nature
of our human selves
while cashing my check from the state.
this country is my favorite I've only lived in
three so far.
I've been asked to leave a couple
for fighting with my brothers
to get political but they can go screw themselves
with their flag and stolen land.
i don't follow it well,
but I hear they bomb people religiously.
you should bomb people because you hate them
because your god hates them.
i will not strap a bomb to my chest.
i will not eat ham with lettuce on sunday.
