letters from the fire (2007)

short Letter to Adolf Hitler:

if i were you
i imagine:
black and white colorless
image upon scene;
parading marauders and endless night screams
under cover of the law.

short Letter to Benito Mussolini:

if i were you
i imagine:
night-wrapped sentinels
marching ‘cross lives;
the country that sheds its own blood.

short Letter to Joseph Stalin

if i were you
i imagine:
frosty capped climbing
upon faces upturned,
supplicants supplicating.
a crumb, Patushka?

and now a word from our psychic, the famous Nev. A. Gotoamerica:

to our glorious President:

if i were you
i wonder…
where are you now?
