Hey You!

To be productive, to produce, to be a product. To have a value because of being productive. A very common mindset for an immigrant. “I have to prove my right to be here with being useful.” This kind of thinking in me I resist. It gives me a lack of motivation to participate in any forms of producing. Also producing words. And these words pour out from my fingers. “You, hey you, you must learn to shake your hands, shake your body, shake that ass, shake your fingers, hard, so hard, that from the tips of your fingers drop millions of stars.”
