One response

  1. I had let this one rest for a couple of months, happened back upon it last night, and after a couple of tweaks found it surprisingly “intersectional.”

    White Supremacy

    My bad:
    Two six-packs of Miller after midnight
    To celebrate a day’s clarity,
    The perfect paganism of Physics
    As on July 20, 1969.
    And now:
    Cursed invariable brain knot
    Bed of nails, the collapsed IQ
    To 58
    With all its ancillary helpless visions, unmediated:
    From the Haitian
    Social worker handling the welfare intake
    And tons of paperwork,
    To the Black Muslim psychiatrist
    Weighing ECT under
    Jewish supervision:
    Forgive my Southern roots.
