Acculturated

They said:
Become acculturated:
You’ll fit in,
And never be alone —

Your faults
Are many, son, and you
Have much to learn,
So much you must be shown —

I longed
To be part of the crowd,
To dance amid
The painted silicone,

So I
Became acculturated:
And my bruised up heart
Turned into
Stone
