Chicano Poet

I arrive from work
a little after midnight

I turn on the news
an earthquake strikes Japan

a tsunami inundates Sendai
the gigantic wave

crushes everything in sight
like sumo wrestlers denied food

like a school girl devastated
by feeling unloved

like elders uncared for
by their dutiful sons

it’s little consolation
that man is not to blame for this
