America The Beautiful

Mr. Bones is brown
and round
like a Mexican girl

who’s giving birth
to a bunch of brown children
to keep America beautiful,

trimming the trees
at the mall,
cutting your yard in the suburbs,

working the temp jobs
in your factories,
in your chicken plants,

in your slaughter houses
at home
and abroad.

And you, America,
you treat them
like whores.
