POETRY:  I Am Not An Ethnic National

by Samar Luberto

I am not an Ethnic National,
Something I find quite trivial,
A bias that is cultural.

I am not a ‘my culturish’
Devoted to things countryish
something I find quite

But I like multi-culturals,

Mine, yours, their-
ours/overalls, Pants full of
patches - togetheralls. So why
do you judge me nationally?
Why from a perspective, so

Say: Are you an Ethnic
