special poem for the new book of poems - Newlights Press 2012

Prayer for Heads

Oh hi, you weak
& vulnerable head
Oh hey, you
half eaten person
with personal
matters & dates

other heads don’t
care so much –
in the gutter here
becoming vilified
as butter

if this book were
a head, you
could eat it
instead of tacos
or Miami

if this book were
Dick Cheney
you’d be thumbing
an asshole
