Poems reflecting on love and war
Contents
Love in the time of war. The jawbone of an ass. A shank -- Gilgamesh's Humbaba was a distant drum -- Here, the old masters of Shock & Awe -- The Mameluke, slave & warrior, springs -- They swarmed down over the town -- My wide hips raised two warriors -- Hand-to-hand : the two hugged each other -- Tribe. Clan. Valley & riverbank. Country. Continent. Interstellar -- The drummer's hands were bloody -- Tonight, the old hard work of love -- When our hands caress bullets & grenades -- A bottle-nosed dolphin swims midnight water -- Someone's beating a prisoner -- His name is called. A son's lost voice -- Heavy metal. The helmet -- The catapult -- Warhorses -- The clay army -- The panorama -- Guernica -- Grenade -- The towers -- Heavy metal soliloquy -- The warlord's garden -- Surge -- Clouds -- The Hague -- The devil comes on horseback -- The crying hill -- Autobiography of my alter ego
