Nepal of Earth’s Reign

thousands of people died in Nepal
today
stripped bare of joy or reality

and I’ve been drinking beer and
sucking on cigarettes shamelessly
feeling bare and helpless,
but with all the commodities
of life, privilege, and 1st-world deities
like Jesus, Guns, and an Opinion

an Anglo American girl is an onion
and when you peel her layers apart
they will make you cry
with stinging dis-knowledge and
comfortable lies
to be tucked into bed at night

over seven-thousand died in Nepal as
thunder
roared outside, a tormented fall
and lightning threatening the comfortable
bed, warm and dry and sweating of Summer

Nepal has been
drowning
as I’m clothed and frowning
with a stretching belly of kin
who do not eat
