The poem I want to share today is beautiful by Michelle Tea. I first became aware of Michelle Tea by trolling the wiki. I think I was looking at the queercore article and it led to her page. After this, I bought one of her books. It was an experience. It was slightly different but nice. I really like her writing. This poem was the second of her poems in the spoken word anthology. It's about America. I think it speaks to the experience many have us have of not being accepted because of things we can't control and the way our country views us. So without further ado.

Wow, that was deep. Trying to reconcile the ideals of your country with the reality can be a tough thing.
