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

2
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.

4
Hands off
to all sinners —
those who buried
their guns
will never dig deep
enough to strike the seam
once called shelter.
