Harbinger of Worse Wet Things to Come
Thinking and sipping – sipping and thinking
my shade grown while world conquered
perfectly located cup of coffee.
Sipping and craving at one out of 14,784 – perfectly located downtown Seattle Starbucks stores – I watched as the Xenon-133 soaked rain drifted in from the peninsula – soaking Seattle with its harbinger of worse wet things to come.
And we do eat the apples – and we do walk in the misty harbinger of worse wet things to come.
When you build a new Border Patrol Headquarters in Port Angeles – fewer and fewer Spanish speakers to pick the apples will come.
The poisoned apples are not in Port Angeles – they’re in Wenatchee, Yakima and Brewster.
Ignoring the Border Patrol in Port Angeles is easy – because our biggest Homeland threatening threat – actually comes from ignoring the multiple trillion-dollar…Bush and Obama – wars of never-ending debt.
Cheap power is one of my human rights.
If my computer runs on dead salmon…
then Arianna Huffington’s runs on the lungs of black and or “other” asthmatic while minority – those children who are not white.
The poisoned apples are not in Port Angeles.
Yet not one of the hunted Spanish Speakers
are able to translate ‘La Migra’
into Pashto or Farsi
or even back again.
Sitting, sipping and thinking
at just one of downtown Seattle’s 14,784
perfectly placed Starbucks stores…
I think Kurt Cobain just floated by.
Ignoring the wet harbinger of worse things to come.
I’m not like them
But I can pretend.
