Foreigner

Foreigner
We turn blind eyes to one another, states
of separation, enforced provincial eyelessness, each
slaughter feels like the first time, baby, it
feels like the very first time,
and I am becoming a desensitized nihilist, not
being part of the problem.

Langston Hughes Had It Right

I stay cool, and dig all jive,
That's the way I stay alive.
My motto,
as I live and learn,
is
Dig and be dug
In return.
