Big Short 

We have planted the seeds for tent cities
And now they have sprouted
It’s a progressive harvest
Cumulative
With rituals that begin crowded under freeway overpasses
While the rains come and a teenager spraypaints
#oaxaca under the 101 but it could just as well be
#orlando or #anywhereusa
One day we will sing songs about the
Great global thread connecting those who carry
Their homes on their backs but
In the meantime we eat popcorn and
Let the air conditioner evaporate the salt off our skin
As we drive past lost potential
Our ambivalence seeding that which will be sown
