Plan A

Plan B

Return to Plan A (with alterations)

"War Appreciation Day" gets top
        billing in the little town

cops out communing
                 it's a neighborly
      the crops are happy, the burgers
are happy, roosters are running
and cats are crowing

The Sultans of Swing
over and over (in my head)

On the highway I think about lines
connecting other lines, nodes,
stops along the way
              and the looping of
nervous energy
in this container
of flesh and brittle bone


A General Smith who told his men to torture
and kill Philippine guerillas, &
they did: disembowlings, beheadings,
castrations (then the gagging the guerillas
w/ their own testicles.)
