Positively Tepoztlan

You've got a lot of nerve,
to say you are my friend.
(and the rest of the song)
I'm looking at you,
America, from
outside your prudishdiction
not mesmerized by hamburger
not seduced by packaging
not enthralled by large men
bashing on a playing field
not super glued to pixels

not waking  
throbbing head wondering 
what happened ...last night/
for the last few generations. 

I know where I am, America,
and, from here, it seems
obvious you're starting to wake
up from your own reverie.
Let someone else
bring you coffee.
