Videodrome

Same question everyday:
Did you see that video of Trump? 

Is it his funeral?
Confederate men
being folded and burnt
at a wake of ten? 
The melting of guns by
women in burkas
to a sarcastic lament to
fries and cheeseburgers? 
Policemen in skirts and
severing in streets by
crowds representing
the non cis percentage? 
black womxn holding 
'loft the appandage? 
News foxes bagged and
thrown Mississippi? 
Oil taps turned off at the
new White House squat? 
Babies taking away
The last KKK? 
Where there are no
tears shed? 

No? 
Then I won't be watching.

Triumph/Acclaim

Triumph > when we walk that hill,
when we walk that hill, 
to a red Vaux beer on a box car top. 

Acclaim > for we're off the upper
in the three point rain,
waiting tables turned.

And the striding pain is just a sprain.
And the tracking's listing,
the steering's shot, but look

*check the sideways lingo* Listen.
We'll be high on tops of keys
we'll drift in green and lush and

split these pick beak bills, thus:
we'll steer ourselves shifty, feed
ourselves fifty, stay hungry and dig, 

we'll Leatherette lick the postal
order toward a brighter one. 
We'll save the cow today.

On the island of small victories, 
sacred moments come.
Peak attitude is sheer collective

and the view up here,
shall earn ourselves
some handsome.

BLM

spit that dummy of guilt
it stops us calling out

switch our phones
from echo mode
pull liking fingers out

power up and ask
why we sat inside ourselves

outdoors it's going off

did we ever learn in school
black lives matter too

or have we just forgot?
