greenbacks is pussy is heaven |
by Stephen Okawa

i  keep reading andrei codrescu 
without any hope
of it meaning
much

i keep shaking my father’s
hand
in my dreams
nothing said yet we smile

i keep struggling
to understand why
people do things
they hate

i keep looking down at money
like
“what the fuck is this shit?”

i keep chanting
greenbacks is pussy is heaven
language doesn’t just die
but certain sounds never
are heard again
