Job 9:20, America, 2017

Previously published in Scalawag

 

Though I am innocent I have enjoyed

an ease of travel and credit, cheap food,

piracy of intangible goods without consequence,

driven by envy of health care or family leave,

 

and that I live in a myopic fog

tearful in the bright lights of human virtues

is a tedious alternation of malaise and worship

for which my own mouth would condemn me.
