Leapdragon 2016 - Aron Hsiao Was Here

overture  §

fuck usa
fuck the president
fuck all you white wasp asses
who never made me feel welcome
who called me a chink
and a gook

i have never once felt welcome in this country
and now i feel less welcome than ever

in the core of my being i am not white
not protestant
not american

i am the other
i am the inevitable
permanent
threatening
inscrutable
other

the
other

the
other

the word of the day is ‘renounce’
which to some minds has the same tenor as ‘traitor’
