red, white & brown

we lived in a small wyoming town &

the neighbors were nice until you played too loudly

or ran across their yard caught up in hide & seek or kick the can

& then it’s not that your just some dumb kid

it’s that you’re some dumb mexican

some half-breed

who is contaminated by the half that isn’t theirs

like it’s a chess game they’d never actually be able to win

because obvs yin & yang is right out their door

& you know that the dumb one is always the one

who says chilly relayno & but works awful hard to

proudly

say

cwa-son
