"'line"

Francis Patrick Molloy




                          islanders

                          i saw ME on TV last night
                          clubbing a whitecoat to death
                          on a frozen, timeless sea.
                          Blood like wine on a critic's page.

                          i once saw an injun movie
                          boy them injuns wuz heathens!
                          does anybody understand blatant analogies?
                          or blatant stereotypes?
                          or do most people prefer scribbles written around a subject
                          that pull the heartstrings like your daily soaps?
