A Poet, or a Pop Culture Casualty, Not an Activist

I am just a geek
who writes about basketball
and drinks wine
when nothing else is near.

From one selfish asshole
to another, Trump,
your do-good rhetoric
is for ears of dumb dumbs.

I am just just a man
with a gun in my hand
who likes to dance
as long as I can.

Hear me,
backs against the wall,
its tie to go home
and see my scars.

Tell me your thoughts
on liberty,
she said oh my god
it is as red as my blood.

I will read books
to the end of the world
in bed
and still say I am underneath.
