dear america

the most dangerous men in the world
wear business suits, not turbans

the most dangerous men in the world
do not pray five times a day
wherever they may find themselves

the most dangerous men in the world
speak perfect english and know
little about the Qu’ran

the most dangerous men in the world
are the ones who make millions
making the weapons which are caused

walking on 10th street to ceramics class
i saw a young man standing in the gap
between some bushes and a concrete wall

it was noon
he was praying
and i was afraid
for him, not of him.
