Spontaneous

Spontaneous

in Vegas
I watch
the collapse
of Iraq
with my cousin’s
wife her nephew
in the 101st
I am respectful
my tongue curbed
as we watch
the statue
being torn down
a live spontaneous
act of liberation
my cousin and I play
count the cameras
and praise
the illusion
brought to you by
an excuse
to believe
