Budget Solution

Instead of cutting teachers,

I dreamed the states cut large portions of the

National Anthem to balance the budget.

During the entire housing crisis,

I heard no news about Native American

Reservation foreclosures.

Once upon a time, the grandmothers

Were flat-chested, as is true of everyone.

They ran through city streets in wedding dresses

To campaign against domestic violence.

Their skin was inhumanely beautiful.

They died with no wrinkles.
