As Asian poets go to prison

Poetry is for the rich
to write about the poor
because only they have time
and no one hears the cries
of the disenfranchised
unless the New York School makes it hip or posh or beat
as Asian poets go to prison
– or so I have heard –
the ones the New York School has read
with dicktionaries for ten cent words.
