Somewhere, Babylon 2006Somewhere,
at the existential Taco Bell of your
an Iraqi palace lined with
American fast food places, latrines, marines,
Once there were roof top gardens,
now there is double scoop chocolate ice cream with rainbow sprinkles.
The molecules of milk roll so easily over and against each soldier's tongue.
So far from home, it's the only thing to remind you of suckling at your mother's teat.
In a land where jasmine scented waters once wafted into the air,
are now broken sewages for the lay person.
They said they were there to save the children,
instead weapons of mass seduction were forced between parched lips.
Where are we now?
There is nothing Green here, there are only more SUVs.
The mercenaries drive these beasts,
burning with the slick remains of fossilized extinction,
hauling cargo of three kinds of cheese,
pepperoni, and canned tomato sauce.
A trek over paved roads can be more volatile than
traveling though an isolated dune at midday.
Stranger LoveI am not the sunlit wing-print
splayed out on the bedroom wall.
I am not the dark mass forming
in a corner of an airless hall.
I am not the viscous vengeance
where you sink your spinning wheels.
I am not the leaky bucket
hung up on your wishing well.
You are not my soul mate missing
wandering a winter's night.
You are not the sound of angels
singing by a candle's light.
You are not the rasp of fingers
fumbling with a hasp of steel.
You are not the tattered towel
soaking up the things I feel.
I am the oblivious child,
dancing where the wildflowers are.
You are my unwitting captive
lighting up a jelly jar.
