Lion's Den

"Lion's Den" Tripoli, 2015, ink, pencil on paper.


The eagle watched

Above the shadow;

Past became present and

Slaughtered a cow:


"Undress these virgins!

They’re not what they seem

(If you know what I mean)


Off to the shooting games!

Look at the right go!

Pass that pine cone!

I read like a book but

That shot was illegible

Just look at it now!

Milk’s in the water

Heat drops in the channel

No song with crickets

I’m not that pineapple

I’m punk and impurity

‘Yond bondage of freedom

Union in disunion



Made fortunes;

-Grief and greed-

So here I am
