To the Persian Gulf: Thanks
Thank you for reminding me I live in a world
no longer home
To any of the seventy thousand
counted by the Red Cross/Crescent
Dead babies, with such parents, playmates,. siblings, elders
As were incidental to a thing called victory.
were claiming victory today. I had forgotten that I live here
in this multiracial residential club that howls with glee
as members kill its members.
I must have joined. There is
No protocol for resignation. So cheers and here's to heroism
Surrounded as I am in this small corner by the
Kindness and intelligence of deviates I almost had forgotten
How it is, but thanks to this reminder
you can bet
I won't forget again.
