Commerce
by Tita Lacambra-Ayala

 

Poor nations are
selling poverty
rich nations are buying it

If prices are getting
higher it only means
we have to be buying
smaller plates

Offer treasures
precious things for
utilitarian uses
instead of giving
           scraps to pets
eat them
and don’t forget to broil

the dog
