Barbie Chang Poems


Barbie Chang Watches

Barbie Chang watches the Ellen Pao
             trial wants the woman

to win thinks the woman is right thinks
             the woman should fight


thinks she is wrong remembers her own
             long days in a cubicle with


Rob Meyer mitering his edges talking
             about his dates with


Asian women in the office it’s awful
             to sit and listen to the


men talk about women the ones who
             made it never complained


never felt pain for others smart ones
             who didn’t want to


work at Walmart marked their words
             carefully Barbie Chang


like Ellen Pao kept good records never
             wore corduroys to


work pretended she hated recreation
             with other Asians


everyone blamed her anyway Barbie
             Chang can’t help too


but think Ellen Pao is ugly not good
             to powwow with


probably doesn’t own Ugg boots got
             booted out of the


office full of lies because of her small-
             fisted eyes
