Orange que te quiero verde, that's Poeticah

The Visual Poetry of Poeticah explores the boundaries between poetry, languages, and traditional with computer visual art.

This is a poem from my chapbook Axtlanadu.

<<Axtlanadu>> Fast Tags for Fast Times Are you PC or not PC? How did we go from personal computers To politically correct? Why should we compare ourselves To machines? Take man out of woman. Replace that "a" with a "y." Why? Woman is bigger than man And man is part of woman. Did man come from woman's rib? Are you for affirmative action? Are you for the right to bear arms? If you're for both then you're PIC, Politically incorrect correct? Are you PI or not PI? How did we go from the number Pi To politically incorrect? Why should we compare ourselves To an irrational number? Use African-American for Black, Mexican-American for Chicano, Asian-American for Oriental, Native-American for Indian, Anglo-American for some Whites. But these words are too long, And use too much paper and energy. So in this cost-conscious, fast-paced Age of sound bites and fast food, We need acronyms. Use MXA for Mexican-American Not to confuse it with MA For Master of Arts, ANA for Anglo-American Not to confuse it with AA For Alcoholics Anonymous, Use ASA, AFA, NVA For many subtle brilliant reasons. But what if someone Is more than all of the above? Then She is a Do Re Mi Fa So La Ti. Does He need a Ph.D.? In the end we are all just Confused. Is that PI or PC? Or a Proud Irrational Computer? <<Axtlanadu>>
