poem drunk on blood

By John Sweet

poem drunk on blood

man with a gun in his
hand says you're already dead,

says the shape of christ
is a slippery thing,

a gift and a curse and a
technicolor lie and
when the trigger is pulled it
sounds like money.

and in a nation of corpses
          no one starves.
