Osama bin Ladin is dead?

Osama bin Ladin is dead?

Osama bin Ladin is dead,
my next door neighbor
asks if I am red
(communist)

I am just telling it
like it is, I say,
suggesting he is too
easily led
(and, no, I am some
sort of anarchist, I
say, in the deep
privacy of my head)

Foreclosures, poverty,
hunger, slavery, war,
rape, oil theft, and
more, you see--
why should Osama
bin Ladin's death
mean much to me?

My Ancestors Cried

My Ancestors Cried

We went from creating art for survival,

to selling our art and culture to survive

sold and bought by the colonizers at a museums, art galleries.

 

While some of my people eat cheese and wine,

we get bought and sold creating genocide


Our Ancestors said art is done by the people

for the people not for rich colonizers

 

But we lost our way our culture, our art, our self
