“White Trash Anarchist” a poem by Eric King

White trash anarchist 
I still love, All the simplest things  
my wife in one hand 
the other, a can of black beans 
hitting every dumpster, 
Target & Barnes and Noble 
Haven’t got any posher 
as I’ve gotten older 
Sit w/Dev in parking lots 
Me & R on starry walks 
and teach my little ones 
how to jam locks 
Deflate the ‘pigs’ rolling prisons 
Tag a bit of wisdom  
finding life a true delight 
outside of capitalism 
we’ve got a system to demolish 
and prisons to abolish 
but where I’ll find the most peace 
this with my little radical family  
with my wife in one hand 
& the other a can of black beans
