Introduction Of Rat - Poem by Nat Z. Punx

rat slave to the twang
who's father was lynched
for freeing their niggers
the moto space trace
on his vapid face
where he's at go figure
his brain's been cinched
in a blue '66 mustang

rat from the 'tract homes
overlooking the wide open

interstate's 'scape
rat from the old 'burbs
generations of roots

steeped in poison-tion
on ain't it grand avenue
it fits so it's his shoe
no reason to misconstrue
and there is no

trans-am-ition
to hop these broken glass

curbs
over and over overlooking

the apron of escape
sprung from ancient

abstract tomes

rat from the factory's

grind
where his mind was resigned
to find his kind
a bind
blind
on the vine
of jackpot sublime
save it for another time
rat holes up the garbage

find
in his hollow mind

rat tales
impale
on the sail of wail
so frail
that the scale
would pale
a funeral veil

rat breeding in the

auquaducts
reading tom wolfe psalms
in neon green yard high font
drinking in the moss
southern comfort and cool breeze

rat
walk on part in your two act play
no lines
walks on stops
and observes
all his history is to be implied
and easily seen
