Radical Racism’s Damaging Dysphoria



Never far from my Bleach Haji.

It trails behind like a suitcase.

The proper way to prevent the spread

of rampant internationalism.

Likened to an ironic oxygen cylinder,

the bleach plays havoc with your breathing

as seen through a mist of ebullience.

Lung and leg implants forthcoming

then may the true resistance begin.

Blood transfusions, been there done that.

Thoroughness has to be fecklessly opportunistic

how else can you fight the crowding,

the touching of shoulders, elbows amid

a schedule so empathically cherished as this.
