7 B & B Haikus


				black and brown children
				jamming down on beat music
				break dancing away


				wheeling down the street
				what she perceives as ghetto
				to him is Eden 


				brown cuz walking by
				black cuz stands outside his crib
				both stop to soul-shake


				chicanos crib here
				next door the cribbers are black
				this is black-brown turf


				cold winters sets in 
				this barrio becomes gelid
				gas bills must be paid


				cannabis smokers
				walking high on loco weed
				minding their business


				poverty stricken
				the poor will always be here
				this barrio also

Nicely written. But hopefully you don't think that all brown and black people are swallowed by poverty?
