It's a wonderful gambit, Beth, and I write

Posted to Poetry and Politics




in ignorance, never having practiced 5-7-5. I have none of your sophistication in the form. But here are some stabs at it ( not syllabically correct in their measure), fueled by my outrage at the little paramecium from Texas.
( someone said he would have had a good career as a male model-- I concur):




Blood-scabbed walls
Abu Ghraib stinks in Crawford
wires straight from gonads to Jesus.




Shower of death
Falls from B-2's
W. remembers his empties
flung out the window.


D.U. fogs
bone marrow dances
legions of GI's crack wise.



Thanks for the "main chance"


Best Wishes,
