There is reason why Miley and her
White Disney can imbrue the hearts
of young Asian girls and boys
and still sell their music.
Their eyes are shaped like almonds,
like slivers of the moon
or sideways rockets
or glitters of black diamonds.
Their young eyes are fully open
in Ways yours and mine never
will be again.
And the beat of racism sounds
like it has all the other days.
It drowns out anything else
that could be put to music
