Another Katrina Gnoem

July 16, 2009

___

SHE WAS DEAD, & YOU’RE SAYING
THAT THE INTERNET IS THE INTERSTATE

she was dead
and you’re saying

that the internet
is the interstate –

prosody in chains
and blankets

congress of day
laborers

we were only
trying to take you

to salvation
in a plane

riding toward
representation

pale green
roses

employed
to find jobs

answering the king
when he spies an ox

so long as
the eyes open

Bush Rules
Out Tax Hike

To Fund
Recovery

pushes up
like a plantation

who said anything
about our future?

I bid you adieu.
Dear father, all

modalities of
the pain went missing

the Mississippi
delta with shotguns

the blacks coming to
rough you up

the editors
of photographs

contaminating
the hum of decay –

a misdemeanor
she never recorded –

perhaps I’ve
been out there

perched on sailboats
to death

trained to recognize
the insignificance of

the most desperate
and take them around

in heaven with all
the alleged

inhumanity
of Halliburton

I drove truck loads
of semen

inside my mind
watching their money

run out of her urine
an empty bank

the construction
of the Lord

will give me some
new casinos

so what if the
terrorists are

located?

This is a combination of about 8 different outputs. I changed the lineation but kept the phrasing intact. Most were written with only the Katrina sources, though a few contained Indian Erotica source text and/or the Birth text.
