The Poetry

“My Exhale”

By CAMILLE IMAN WOODS

Unleash the Marxist monster.

break the exploitation

manifested as social constructs

produced by capitalism

Unload the commodity of its fetishism

release mass consciousness

so that it may recalibrate

to a state of commune and homeostasis

 

Retain the autonomy that capitalism birthed out of the womb of feudalism.

 

Halt the reign of consumerism

destroy the intimacies

of global commerce

and world war

 

Remove the weights of human hierarchy from this bridge called my back

 

so that I the lochness,

 

may arise from the pollution that fills the sea and breath the air of my own salvation.

 

ThePoets&ThePoetesses: A note from the creator

Welcome back to aggieANGELOUS for Spring 2015. I have been honored to have had the opportunity to read the artistic products of UC Davis through submissions for this column and I am humbled by the bravery of my peers who offer up their vulnerability through their poetry. I have written a poem to start off this Spring Quarter and I am excited to read the submissions for this spring.

If you have questions for me personally, please do not hesitate to send me an email at aggieangelous@gmail.com or check out my personal blog at mscamilleiman.blogspot.com.
