day 118 (July 1, 2017)

…can i deny
its in my
name
if i exoticize
my historical lies
if i
namastecize and
aryan migrationize
to rationalize that size
always matters
and democracy
for the majority
is exactly
what
the name was
always all about
can I now march
i wonder
wading through those
pools
of blood
because they now
show up red
under my kolhapuri
nikes
always used to think
that wet
was just honest
sweat
when i divested myself
of that vestment
at the door
to keep the house
clean
can i
now say i
am not that type of hindu
scream now
that
i may not be queer
but i am an ally
a lie to make sure
i will always align
but
never be congruent
because thats whats
always in a name
whatever i may say
is
not in it 

and yet …
