Throwing Up (VH)


Vala Hafstað's picture

When I heard about the government's plan

to block every artery from the heart of my country

in the interest of aluminum

I felt like throwing up

Luckily, I was in my living room

listening to the news—

not onboard an airplane

traveling to Washington

That would have been bad timing
