DOCILITY

 

I want to speak another language other

than that uttered in Fallujah and Phnom Penh.

I want to form different words than

those heard in Belsen and Vorkuta.

 

No more mephitic carcasses or

perforating screaks.

 

And so my khaki uniform keeps

my carbine company -  locked away,

shut off from impulses as I write.

For now I know -

the pen is lighter but mightier

than the rifle.

 

WE LOVE THE SMELL OF NAPALM IN THE

EVENING

for the Catonsville Nine

 

We are inside, easy

like striking a match

a blow for peace.

There is paper, lots.

They won’t listen, their ears

deaf to reason

alert to battle.

How many people must die?

How high must the smoke rise?

How black must the bodies char

before they say no

to war?

This is our war

we will use their weapon.

There is paper, lots.

Nine of us

here in Catonsville

surrounded by paper

draft files

death warrants.

Pacifists=criminals.

Conscripts=dead bodies.

Bring out the napalm

it must be better to burn

paper

than children.
