Westernisms

In the land of
lifting
waxing
sucking
where the beautiful people
wear sizes 0-3
have no scraped knees
place where size 16
once reigned queen
and curvaceous definition defined you
roots bleached
teeth bleached_
skin bleached_
pale
liver and lungs
tainted brown with
liquor and cigarette intake
trading stocks and
womenstock
with foreign lands
prostitution spit-swap
open-palmed handshakes
geisha girl bound foot scoots
parallel
sweaty hooker desert nights
offering
misogynistic
back rubs
in the counterrevolution
of the revolution’s counter
we dissolve laws
to our liking_
and let the troublemakers kill one another
over territory that is really ours
and hide behind the metal skirts of matriarch
beckoning freedom
with
ties and gags
trapping the innocent in our world.
