Ballad of the Poverties from per month Review

There’s the poverty of the cockroach country and the rusted bathroom bowl
The poverty of to thieve nutrition for the 1st time
The poverty of to mouth a penis for a paycheck
The poverty of candy charity ladling
Soup for the negative who should always be there for that
There’s the poverty of concept poverty of the swollen abdominal shamed
Poverty of the degree mill the poll that is going nowhere
Princes of predation allow me inform you
There are poverties and there are poverties

There’s the poverty of inexpensive baggage bursted open at immigration
The poverty of the became head, the prevented eyes
The poverty of bored intercourse of tormented sex
The poverty of the bounced fee the poverty of the dumpster dive
The poverty of the pawned horn the poverty of the smashed interpreting glasses
The poverty pushing the sheeted gurney the poverty cleansing up the puke
The poverty of the pavement artist the poverty passed-out on pavement
Princes of finance you who've no longer lain there
There are poverties and there are poverties

There is the poverty of hand-to-mouth and door-to-door
And the poverty of reports patched-up to promote there
There’s the poverty of the kid thumbing the Interstate
And the poverty of the bride enlisting for war
There’s the poverty of prescriptions who can afford
And the poverty of ways might you ever finish it
There is the poverty of stones fisted in pocket
And the poverty of the village bulldozed to rubble
Princes of weaponry who've never tasted war
There are poverties and there are poverties
There’s the poverty of wages stressed out for the funeral you
Can’t get to the poverty of the wage cut
There’s the poverty of human hard work provided silently at the curb
The poverty of the no-contact legal visit
There’s the poverty of backyard sale scrapings unfold
And rejected the poverty of eviction, marriage ceremony mattress out on street
Prince permit me inform you who won't ever study via phrases
There are poverties and there are poverties

You who trip via inner most jet like a housefly
Buzzing with the opposite flies of plundered poverties
Princes and courtiers who won't ever examine via words
Here’s a reflect you could check out: take it: it’s yours.

Outside (if there IS an outside) colored crèches hum into the dark, a swarming sound, investors, stock exchanges, change—it's all in my head—America, fixed on skillets, quiz show questions, high-priced spreads. On the couch a purple textbook lies, PSYCHOLOGY it says, and harbors small suspicions: men are attracted to red, but women to blue.
