Residency Delpeshian

I climbed into a world of apartments
where teenagers sat within.

I went to many parties,
ate chips n salsa, popcorn, and pizza.

Then I realized
it was not a world of apartments
where teenagers sat within
eating chips n salsa, popcorn, and pizza.

But rather,
it was the United States of America.

And it went on forever.

The Oligarch’s Smirk

In a train station full of people
No one would slow down
They’re all walking away
quickly
A child has fallen down
An old man too
But everyone keeps walking
fast
This is the United States of America
This is Korea
This is the way of life on earth
Now – the new way
They have to get to work
No one’s looking
