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.
