Immigrant Status

Vintage Words


When a distinction is made

to define your future as this

or that kind of expatriot

there is no room left to redefine

you as a repatriot.


The ultimate questions have been

and will continue to be how much

coin you carry and how much do

you intend to make in the new



When you arrive you find a wall

or razor wired fence built expressly

for you, and to defer criminallity

in high places, guns will be pointed

at you while those around you huddle 

in masses yearning.
