Cosmopolitan/Vernacular

The cosmopolitan is sans character

Lacks the bite

Which the vernacular defines

The global is the cultural colonial

Is the gulf migrant local?

Or a statistical subject

Of transnational labor

The cosmopolitan white washes the pain

In a rhetoric of hard work and efficiency

While the vernacular is paranoid with things

More basic,

Such as a data recharge
