another city poem

Recommended Posts

this backcountry, all pastures and fields and
razor-backed hills where the clouds look like they could
scrape the treetops or the backs of the winding cows
lewiston, idaho, middle of fucking nowhere
sister to clarkson, built on riverbanks and stolen land

your town hall proudly displays histories lived by
white colonialists and their snaking paths
your town hall proudly displays the natives that died for them

perhaps unrelatedly, every wireframe sign stabbed into the earth
advertises gun rights and conservative campaigners

i say to hell with it
and i aint coming back
