Impeachment season: eight poems, 1972

Sad Alba

I stroked her leg
     and she murmured
         "Peace"

then I stroked her belly
     and softly from her sleep
         she said "vomit" --
             so I let her lie.

Metaphysm

"a bolt from the blue"
or
"she had a
metaphysm"

&
it changed
her
into a

(---------------)

February

the animals
       babble
              in the water

like a broken
       radio
until their cells
       spring
              open

to rust
       slowly
             in the sun

Community

The heads of
the women are
bowed as the

men slit the
throats of the
giant fish

Buy More Groceries, Kids

The prisoners of war
stepping from the plane
in socialist pyjamas
& zen crewcuts
         to be "briefed"
         by Elmer Fudd.

History

Alfred E. Newman
sees the universe as
a peanut butter 'n
jelly sandwich on
rubber bread, and
he eats it right up

Campaign

The Nix surfboards along on the
electronic wave as triumphantly as
ol' Hitler rode the mechanical wave of voodoo ...

one thing's for sure. It's pain in the hair time again
for America's walking weird
and the dancing robots are going to be front & center.
