snuffed

By M.P. Powers

I.

POLITICS is an urchin clad in a gorilla suit
standing in traffic
advertising that place up the street
that doesn’t even
exist.

II.

CONVERSATION OVERHEARD WHILE SPRAYING THE URINALS
OF THE ETERNAL BARROOM:

Al: “I just have a problem with people who are so adamant about saving the life of a two week young fetus (which is basically almost a tadpole), but don’t give a shit about a twentyyearold vet who is maimed for life, or the family of any dead soldier… don’t give a shit… yet the same fuckers have the gall to traipse around in camouflage hunter’s garb, because they think there’s nothing wrong with murdering animals (or wounding them for life) because it’s a socalled known fact animals have neither feelings nor souls…”

Don: “I know, I hate Christians.

Al: “I was actually talking about republicans.

Don: “There’s a difference?

Al: “There’s republicans who aren’t Christians, but it’s hardly ever the reverse.

Don: Well the Christians are the worst of the bunch. I mean, the Born Agains. As if being born twice is sufficient (for continued spiritual growth).

Al: “I call ’em born again phonies…hypocrites. Introduce me to one who isn’t and we’ll talk.

Don: “Forget the hypocrite thing. They’re sociopaths. They just know how to hide their monstrous souls well. With them, everything’s about them & feeding the goat within. Don’t be misguided.

Al: “I won’t…”

Civilization
is an old maid in a soiled smock
playing
a french horn while trying to balance her slippered feet
on an
upsidedown canoe.

“Nothing new.”

And everyone knows this much
is true: RELIGION
AND STATE,
like mutt-n-jeff, dong and ding, dosey doe, they never will stop sharing opposite ends of the same
wangalanga

dildo.”

V.

BEWARE OF THE GOD
of the hellfire variety, the god who insinuates himself
in war, vengeance, fortune, lust and
luck.

BEWARE OF THE GOD
OF GUNRIGHTS, GAYWRONGS AND RIGHTEOUSNESS.

BEWARE OF THE GOD
of lovers
whose unlove is the envy
of everyone.

Beware the false gods, while the real one, THE GOD WITHIN,
the god of you-and-me-and-me-and-you
melts
like a cheap Mexican
candle.
