Reality Disputes Responsibility

The women bomb state-run Saturday,
Johannesburg the population,
intercept bullet man Mr. International.

Ancestors police the scornful madness of Italy,
Libya disputes another model. Berlusconi prepares;
posts women’s envelopes.

belated gay capital -
a president makes a population.

The Shoe Turned

I understand that inhalation of days of strawberry air
plucked seeds from a minefield with euphoric ferocity
to get a glue for all crops the properly independent

overlapping diversity cultivated a crippling trust in
that oath to deter and I understand it potentially
has more than half an island in common

with the Doomsday Archipelago and hallucinogens
conducted by teleconference with all confidence
a remote chemical judge and I understand that.

Snatch Fragile Hurt

Bugs Bunny, built on tropes of wire, his rib is not yours
I give just about everything else to women
They fight as warriors, flexible and steady.

The double bed the best form of defence
He’s vulnerable, he lays the blame
And protects the slow-burning land.

We discern only rhythm to history
James is born blowing up
Plows these years, sinks deeper.

Addictive Bangs Reported

Of all the good reasons to avoid Starbucks, here's another:
You're probably among millions
who have experienced getting hit by bullets.

Listening to the radio, your mind wanders to parties, first kisses...
Then, suddenly you're in a New York area hospital,
in a coma, fighting for your life.

There's no doubt about it.
Powerful and immensely overpriced coffee--
the result is crushing scenes such as this.
