You’ve Got a Disease

by wechslerh66

Republicans have the best sex
but it’s not with you

you were wearing the wrong tiara

I had the wrong name

we had no ticket
to the dance

who knows why Jesus loves me

who told you, what comes in here,
never leaves

words mean what you think
they mean

you & your own eyes

in this waking nightmare underworld

recurring dreams of Gaza
Mosul
Bagram
Baptists & bogeymen
obscenities of empire
Jenna with a henna tattoo

wake up
make up what we lost

we own these things beyond ownership
we conjure this too

your body is a tenement
now occupy it
