Rage

 

pray

excuse my edge

dismiss me out of hand

angry man

on a barstool

on a toilet

opening a hymnal

singing his praises

false security

protection

of religion

of dependence

of sanctions

in a cage

in a urinal

in a pocket

rage spends itself

is the currency of monsters

spittle puke

is blood dripping from the ceiling

 

did someone die in here

blood splatter and perfume

red blots on the page

bookmark

wait

you missed the part

his appearance

front stage center

dark horse back

 

no

he crossed the room

spilled his guts

fell over the porch rail

drowned

on his blood gorge

on the sidewalk

federal boulevard

in front of the bar

in public

on the wrong side of night

 

well

he fucked up the bathroom

who’s gonna clean up this mess

cops don’t care

they are tin men in the city

citizen protectors

in a protracted environment

paid guests at the door

at the table

at the gimmee

more blood feast

 

I wanna know

if he finished the book

before he mauled the princess

robbed the beggar

refused to acknowledge

and show respect for the band

that piece of meat on the sidewalk

it belongs there

it exemplifies

it horrifies

glorifies the city fathers

 

I wanna go home

take the Cherokee princess with me

make her safe

return her to the sultanate

of the people

mister detective

politician

I am unable to learn your lies

much less believe them

 

the good man

the angry man

tucked his long knife

into the cigarette machine

I put the princess on a bus

destination

the raped and looted

spiritual ground of our fathers

nails rusting in the bodies

of our friends

the trees

where our ancestors’ children

were crucified

skinned alive

skins worth more

to Europeans

than the hides of brother buffalo

 

angry man in a room

on a chair

beneath the glaring false light

staring into the eyes

of his inquisitors

moved past hate

moved beyond sorrow

underwater drifting

floating between life and

un-death

 

hanging on

very little left

right horse white

angry man

on the barstool

in a cage

on a toilet

rage
