from Poems from a revolutionary summer







Elevators are for kissing
Unless Cairo is in the background
We received orders to shoot
Instead we left a good tip and disappeared




Exchanging compliments with minorities. The cab driver has his own exclusion algorithm.




despite the ruling elite
we can now park for free downtown
and watch the masses
engage – kindly – in border dispute
