Poet Bio

How native is he,
how indigenous is she,
whose ancestry allows them
to hold dual citizenship?

Surely you’re a hypocrite
Surely you’re an invalid
if you insist on spewing shit
like, “I don’t like immigrants,”

since your own blood is thick with foreign antecedents.
Your body bleeds exotic lineage.
