SPEARMINT FLAVOR

 

Spearmint flavor

enhance the

commercialized rhythms

of Sufi music

performed in Pakistan

in an opium field

protected by

reactionary Marxists

and symphonic guerrillas 

wearing fatigues

and cheap sunglasses

pretending to be

the actual messengers 

of the Messiah.

 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

written in the mid to late 80s when I still wore the Brautigan influence on my sleeve
