South USA 2017

For Eric Chuk

These burgeoning moments
These people who just want to know
Their hearts of truth leaking blood
across smooth white tile

These casket makers and basket makers
Markers of the schools of languages
of giving and taking

These rope ladder smiles
Smears of struggle

These collapsing arguments
