What Is Indisputable Is That Around the World
Anti-Americanism Has Exploded
by Ally Malinenko
Apologize for the colonialism
for the wars
for the drones
and the bombs
for the righteousness
for the words
like
if you’re you not with us
then you’re against us.
Apologize for the clothes
and the McDonalds
and industrialized farming
and the filthy seas
and the warming planet
and the dying polar bears
and the melting artic.
Apologize for racism
and slavery
and crooked lying
politicians
begetting
crooked lying
politicians
and for saving our
ass during the wars.
Apologize for spying on us
and listening in
and judging
and swooping in at the last
minute to help
even when no one wanted your help.
Apologize
for all the death
and 9/11
and stealing our oil
and going broke
and empty dollars
and empty stomachs
and poverty
and Medicaid
and for refusing to help your own people, my god.
Apologize for goddamn optimism
and your hatred and fear
and failed schools
and fat kids
and loud tourists
and ignorance
and rap music
and reality television.
Apologize
for being on top
and being right
and being wrong
and calling the shots
praying and dying
and atheism
and heathenism
and fundamentalism
and morality
and judgment.
Apologize for machines
and unions
and cheap labor
and work camps
and slave labor
and child labor
so you can have your
iPhones
and movies
and DSL
and starbucks
calories
carmel brulee latte
and organic yarn
and high-speed everything

and everything
and everything
and everything else
that makes you think you’re better than the rest of
us six billion
eight hundred
and seventeen million.
