11 hours of sitting up straight
Woke up with my mind space
Said goodbye to G.G. & took the slap in the face & went on my way.
Library to print off applications
Work in this community or work past the Appalachians
My mind spaces as I make my way for envelopes paid for by a generous face
Swear I know his name but I just spaced but I can remember the place
Smiles & thanks, he knows my name but my memory went blank.
My mind is space sipping on a mocha checking the news
Via twitter on my iPod
Fax out an application & pray that my God let some of my karma be by gones
So I can just land on my feet & get another impala
A nice apartment, money for my mama, & distance myself from the impoverish drama
Sip on my mocha
Listen to unni give more orders while I really just wanna get away in my mind from Minnesota
Alleviate stress inhaling the warmth of the aroma from my mocha.
There’s another job to apply to
more work to do
I can do both but pause for the consist tragic news:
Bombing on my fatherland
Miners trapped in New Zealand
Actor decapitated his mother
Fielding questions on behalf of Koreans
The exhaustion begins & my only solace & comfort is my unni has more work that needs to be done
& we’re Indians so we can make tedious work into jokes & fun.
Wit back & forth with grin on our faces
Laughing but my mind is filled with thoughts of my Asians
I can’t stop thinking of my Korean family
Worried for my halmonis
When can the peninsula live in harmony?
And how can I focus on a Powwow
When just got repossessed was a part of me
As materialistic as that may be
But the day must continue
and I gotta space out these issues
So I can meet more faces; more connections make it to more places by taking their direction
Just another day but at night I’m wide awake my mind space but plagued.
Just another day.
