I need a dose of antivenin infused
blood, call out the Gadsden herpetologist.
I need to blowout my synapses. Run
the Goldwater films in reverse—where is my gun?
god’s in the tuinal—he filched the dilaudid.
Vote early, vote often, says the hip-priest.
Better dead than pink, says uncle Justus,
Drown the last river dolphin. Beef! More beef.
More beef, more clear-cuts, more carbon,
more methane, more beef.
See coastal Kansas! Unfurl the flag.
Renew your American Mancard.
(Meanwhile, in the best of all possible worlds)
No need for Civil War reenactments—
all the slave rebellions succeeded.
“Gratitude is black—
Black as a hero returning from war to a country that banked on his death.
Thank God. It can’t get much darker than that.”
— Jericho Brown / “Hero”
