Opening Night at Joyce Gordon Gallery in Oakland - 8/4/09
Third World Oakland Days, We Got

trash in the City cans
over-flowing, pick apart 'n' spilled on the pavement
leftovers from our hungry slow food cousins, the Other Californian's jump and dive show
cross walk roulette and the parks r closing
trees ripped and fried, grass droughted
daddy's banks raised our limits again
city services now forgotten
furloughs, Inc. =
corps. laughy broadcast lies

wanna buy a 3rd world city?
welcome to half empty....
