my mother doesn’t like tattoos
art belongs on a wall
well i say no one
not even my mother
gets to tell me that i can’t
be a masterpiece
"We never questioned the existence of God.
What we questioned is his bulldozer
turning Palestine into a gas chamber.
What we question is a manager in Macy’s
and the sweatshops our children call the North pole
What we question are the 60 swollen lashes
on the back of a woman
of allowing herself to be brutally raped
What we question is the idea
of heaven having gates.
