Poetry: America is Loving Me to Death by Michael Kleber-Diggs
acrostic golden shovel
America is loving me to death, loving me to death slowly, and I
Mainly try not to be disappeared here, knowing she won’t pledge
Even tolerance in return. Dear God, I can’t offer allegiance.

A child was born yesterday/Nothing but an innocent babe/Someone sowed a bitter seed/How could it grow but a bitter weed?
