There Are Always Times of War


There Are Always Times of War

the trick to eating vegetable soup
is in the not-looking-down
because it’s gross 
              like fucking a donkey

not that I
             not that I
I mean
              you know
I’ve never
              had vegetable soup
No.   Shit.

I mean fucked a donkey

            I’ve never fucked a donkey

Not in peace time anyway.

But there are always
times of war…

(from my book The Aftermath, etc. Monkey Puzzle Press)
