 Four Poems, selected from 

My Geopolitics


1. Geopolitics

Meet me in the Kempinski lobby
Through the Emirati fields
When my white master gives me a visa

There’s a cheesy ass place in
Do you have a place in mind ?

Let me think where we should go
Okay then pick a hotel
I’m in the mall
Alright I’m walking to vox

3. Hahaha

White tears
White tears is when white people cry

The pope can suck it
They are made for suck in’
It’s right
Come now

3. There’s a lot of things I want to say

Hahaha aww you’re flying to Paris ?
