Finely Textured Colon…izing

Fine textured beef euphemism for
eaters
of industrial lives separated and rendered
and now more precisely defined as Pink Slime

Finely trained Red…Coats of colonial times
feared and jeered here and everywhere and if you’d hear
the Beef…
eaters
were coming you knew the color of dread

read
the recent euphemism for consuming what lies
on the slaughterhouse floor
offal
finely textured meats colon…izing
us

U.S.
euphemism for colonizing Iraq mushroom attack
the Pink Slime of the Red Scare is where Hiroshima is buried
cover-ups

manufactured finely textured…lectures
structures the language of war
Manifest Destiny, Cold, M.A.D., Terror
the shock and ahhh Operation Iraqi Liberation
O.I.L.
the War on Drugs
reefer madness, paper, papers, decordicating yellow journalism
gas…
in the finely textured lines explodes in trenches from chambers of House and Senate
pipelines
to war, profit, Afghanistan through Pakistan
fuel

Ahead
our head with a blood brain barrier
carries overwhelmed cells…absorbing calls
for finely textured slime that turns your lips red…
our coat cloaked in tales of terror
our wars pre-emptive and empty
our country with more bars than stars
our Constitution listing in the midst of 9/11
our person, place, papers, and effects neglected

Read
the headlines and the finely textured messages
with your blood in your veins read and true
to the euphemisms of U.S.
Land of the Free Home of the Brave
where the buffalo aren’t burgers and antelope aren’t game
where all are created equally

where we oil, gas, and fuel ourselves
without yellow journalism, pink slips, or pink slime or Black Opps.

just this thought…….of us at home
is
heralded ‘round the world
