NINE SHORT POEMS

 

-saiom shriver-

 

CLARIFIED SEA MIRROR

 

the sun with his

clean cloth has

wiped the morning fog

from the sea mirror.

It now blazes with

his reflected light.

 

NOT PRO LIFE BUT PRO DEATH

 

They call themselves 'pro life' as they support war, execution, and the eating

of murdered mammals, birds and fishes. They are not pro life. They are pro death.    

They arrogantly assert in ignorance that animals have no souls. 

 

V FORMATION

 

Migrating birds in disciplined V formation fly...

that they not with each other

collide in the sky

 

BELLY CAN

 

With dead fish

the pelican

turns his stomach

into a belly can

 

PUZZLE PIECES

 

They subdivide and crucify the animals...

but these puzzle pieces can never

be reassembled. The life that butchers

and those who pay the hitmen by

buying the meat take... can never

be reassembled into those animals.

 

THE FAMILY THAT SLAUGHTERS TOGETHER

 

Government funded media networks

would have us all believe

that the family which slaughters together

stays together.

 

NOSTRIL VIOLATION

 

You are raping my nostrils,

said the woman to another

who had sait down nest to

her and was wearing patchouli

 

NEANDER SALAMANDER

 

The salamander

who meanders

by the Neander

unlike the GOP

 would never

criminally gerrymander

*

Footnote:

The GOP executioners of the Supreme Court have just approved the racist gerrymandering

 of Mike DeWine and Jon Husted in Ohio and of Cornyn, Cruz, Abbott, Perry and others in Texas

 

FATTENING THE FLOCK

 

They call it 'fattening the flock'

because like the wicked witch

who enslaved Hansel and Gretel,

they care only for the process

 

of murdering the mammal into food.
