who is evil

June 30, 2007

ask anyone
inside the circle,
they will tell you
who is evil.

ask anyone
outside the circle,
they will tell you
who is evil.

storm ships

those billowy clouds
with voluptuous
set against blue sky

float on their way
to commit raucous
and ruin

unable to cross
synaptic divides

lay in piles of data
on the shoreline of consciousness

poking letters
into this radiant screen

bip bip bip blip
bip bip bip blip…

I think back to
your soft abrasions

No more

just spycurity.

No more sleeping
in peace,

 only sleeping
while watched.

Dad was often a car
or washing machine
with arms –

to which I handed
a tool,
or a pack of smokes.

wave to the universe

anxious images
over and over again …


atop wooden consoles
we pulled in whatever
was out there

footage of tanks
in hopeless mud
cannons flashing
through the night

our rugged life,
at the television
we would stare

zeros twisting
down in flames
der fuhrer pounding
with indignant might

in truculent german
to adoring masses
who would cheer

as he screamed
we versus them
follow the dream
the deutsches reich

I would wonder
what is he saying?
why is he so angry?

why are people
goose stepping
haling heiling

singing crying
like fools

(just as a non
anglophone might think
when first hearing Limbaugh)
