HOW DARE YOU TALK LOGISTICS
WHILE PEOPLE STARVE IN AFRICA

 
"how many angels dance on the head of a pin" 
the most pressing investigation 
                                        pressing 
the red-blooded real, the lace-ribbed 
the brine-eyed 
               between sandwich halves of 
metaphysical prayer-hands object(ive) unreal 
        fastfood for 
                 an imaginary god 
with a plastic fork and folded napkin 

- Jenne Micale
