A Poem about My Father’s Opinion on Opinion
By Futaba Shioda
Molecular units in a cellular process,
Ability To Piss off
A Trying Parent
The fruit juice to life!
Fifteen steps to enlightenment
To the = sign
(Too many buttons on the calculator)
127.63± i^89-¥ = x
Negative thirty-four to the eleventh power!
Radical y minus nineteen!
Pi plus i…? Or my foot.
Doubt lest proven
‘Never’ is finite
Mental boxes of
Formulated emotions waiting in scheduled lines,
Everything [except the Republican Party]
17- 4 = truth
Osmosis, mitosis, grammar, and sex.
(13.68 + 2 seconds of silence)
A tranquil light shaft sprinkles across my pencil…what about art?
Pulsating hums in the unexplainable turnings of cosmic strings?
(Pluto falls out of the solar system)
Adapt To Patriarchy.
