How come: Adrienne Rich… June 22, 2008

Posted by vsap in Blogroll, Poetry, Uncategorized.

Ancient anarchist hail from Poe’s perch do you not

hear that Adrienne means rich in Greek or some such

so I am played for this clever inside joke or queer coincidence

Rich Rich, really: define place color definition

setting aside obvious tendencies for critical analysis

picking out and up a weapon without compunction

because I can: I will

You do know the world isn’t a reflection of Vermont, Oregon,

Idaho, or some place in Northern California, they are your vampires

unable to see themselves in any kind of patriotic mirror

of this republic, least of its parts and parts still admiration-drenched

deftly marketed to old hippies, landed aristocracy and the like

vacant of position, vacant of collegial notions they say they seek

Mildly amusing to see green-bent humans embrace Darwin all the while

doing everything possible to frustrate natural selection: not in my backyard

Not rich indeed: bankrupt and reveling in their whole food brand

of chaos, dissing order EXCEPT if they can rule then all bets are off

like that: all bets off
