Exercise

October 24, 2011

expression is risky

glittering beads  on a rosary

queued up for answers-

the backs of deserts  bowing for rain

if I could live on sand I would

erect cities from the mud I’ll mix

from sweat and spittle

I hear termites and ants are experts

 

there is no Noble Savage

no Chosen People

no golden past no Paradise Lost

in fact  choose your opium du jour

since Jesus was not, apparently, a Christian

 

there is only

the floor of the present

in a room with a tendency to dust

so get your brooms  out

before  filth becomes a habit.
