New York, 1942

God doesn't love
a broke son.
He can't give back.
God doesn't love
the invisible daughter,
giving
blowjobs in Harlem.

God doesn't love.

Rich men can get into heaven;
rich men own heaven.
The white and the pure
inherit the earth.
The white and the pure
inherit the history.

Trying to collect crumbs
with fingernails, we realize
God doesn't love.
