Suburbia

Creating monsters everyday
Full of plastered on smiles and road kill

Describe your white picket fences and two car garages

Cracked sidewalk, Broken back
“Let’s keep up appearances, Billy”

Ride your bike through the land mines
Sprinkler systems never fail after a long rain

TV dinners and discrete police beatings

Just remember to plant your flowers
Put the flag out


Spit on the ground.

That poem was way above my understanding; very intellectual and deep.

The imagery used in this poem makes the reader feel as though they are looking at the world through the author's eyes; very transcendental.
