Jerusalem Poems That Already Are

Jerusalem Poems that Already Are:

 

A political poem! that snarkily observes the rather un-Ironic

Irony of an Oppressed People Oppressing People.

 

A devotional poem!

that undulates and ululates

how Holy thy Stones

and Widows

and thy Condom Wrappers.

 

A war poem!

 

A love poem!

 

An I love war poem!

 

An I wore love and it burned through my skin poem!

 

And my mouth is empty but for

a tongue that wriggles

like vertigo.

 

And my pen sticks

then I push until it tears through the fevered paper of

my femur

and through the earth.

 

The lustful and the lackluster.

 

And here I would insert a stanza

about angels.
