The Sin Casas

Capitalism in action

Open prisons in the street

The creatures of the vents

& cardboard coffins

Packing case sarcophagi

Not awfully permanent

But better than the poison sky

The pool of the puking

Lorded over by the AIDS barons

Moved on by the Keepers of the Tedium

The props who are supposed

To make the minons cringe.

Edward Dorn


Lite Gulag,

the poverty industry
