Untitled Report on News & Religion

What about these
Islamic Courts?
I’d let my friends
dance on speakers,
wishing only that I
had bigger speakers,
or smaller friends.

They’re gonna have to
raise cop pay.
When they do that
the streets will be streaked
with blue.

Same deal with teachers and classrooms.

All I asked for
was one meal
your body
the life
the resurrection,
the denuded
weapons cache.

You said, “That’s pornographic.”
And wouldn’t let me take communion.

Hands off
to all sinners —
those who buried
their guns
will never dig deep
enough to strike the seam
once called shelter.
