poetry session with accidental tourists…

poetry session with accidental tourists

side street jivers
small time hoods
afraid of the hood
so
hangout
in unclaimed territories
where police patrol
an unpaid protection
from
gangs
and
undesirable pimps
pimps
who bring down
land values
with women
and
men
wearing last year’s wardrobe
of broken dreams
car horns
blare briefly
requesting
newly arrived
imported products
from international labs
or
upscale suburban labs
owned by
the same
corporations
as those abroad
but
delivered without
transportation cost
to dock workers
on their way
to unload ships
full of american flags
made in china
on their way home
via dimly lit bars
barrooms
adorned with
custom-made blondes
who sway
to half-heard music
from speakers soaked
with beer
and
stale saucy fantasies
fantasies
that help to drain
your uncle’s bank account
or
the guy next to you in bed
doesn’t matter
he or she
just the state of affairs
of affairs
common sexual fantasies
played out nightly
without regard
to sexual preference
nationality
gender
race
or
religion
