A smear on your pillow

Coalmining is a dirty business, race-changing, whoring.
You dig, mine a vein, you dig, mine a vein.
You dig enough and you might learn Chinese.
You dig enough and you’ll find the mass grave,
ugly as your own anatomy, someone buried there,
hurrying, sweating, worried they profited someone else
that black as coal you saw get out of your bed
this June morning when the kids outside cluck and coo.
