Two more poems

My face reflects the hopes and dreams of my ancestors

so I dye my hair and shave it funny

and wear the same clothes until

I have to fix them with safety pins

my face still reflects the hopes and dreams of my ancestors.

I ran into a man on the street

with one lens taped to his face

over his eye

I assume his frames

had broken
