 Contemporary poetry by Dan Donlan

I'm about a fourth
of the way
to finish the fifth

So far there have been
three two car shootouts
In the neighborhood
We are running out
of black lives to matter
Two wife's have been shot in the head
I think I'll finish the fifth and go to bed

The kids are excited about the fireworks
coming tonight
To get a preview
Drive through the city of Burien
Now known as Northern Mexico inner city
Trust me what they are doing to this country
It ain't pretty

The leaders want to legalize dope
I know why
Part because it is pretty clear they use it and
The police don't have to settle the crime
The Zombies are killing each other

They are closing down schools
Starting fires in buildings
The good news
You don't have to take an
expensive trip to Mexico
They are bringing vacation trips home

How do you spell Garcia?
Gonzales
or Pedro
90 percent of
Yard workers in Seattle

How do you spell
What happened to my garden tools?
Garcia
Pedro
or Gonzales

Food that gets the heart stirring
Also has the bowels moving

I am thinking of moving to Northern Mexico
Actually Bellingham on the Canadian border
Is Burien a Spanish word
Because English no longer heard

I grew up going to Highline high
Today I would be a minority
I speak English
I do fit in but I like tamales
Somewhat corney

We would like to send the immigrants home
And the Major back to San Francisco
Where ever he was born
