I feel the American

PHOTO BY BENJAMIN LEHMAN ON UNSPLASH

An immigrant’s Fourth of July ode to homesickness.

I feel the American in my car
Tuning in to NPR
All things considered, it helps me see
The air is fresher here near me

I feel the American when I sing
“Midnight on the City of New Orleans”
By a man who died without a cent
Music used without consent
