the Husseins. and Hitlers.
are famous-- direct. unplugged: the twisted ridiculous.
they are the names we possess, we lambaste
to perpetuate and inherit
herds of the unheard: i find ambition
and regression. i am an obsession.
as startling as Hiroshima. the throngs I
have just offended. the mobs with which I have contended
to suppress (undo, dissemble)
they were sons of someone.
ideally, love could decipher the world.
if only we could derive her structure
replicate her culture.
clone her anatomy: archaic and cryptic.
in search of such an
anthropologist: this archaeology
surmounts the Einsteins and prodigies
She is the fossil that the tomb unrolled:
I would fall to her
I would live in her cavern.
Hussein, Hitler. in your sickness-- depart.
let us massacre ourselves--
