Our Generation has had no Great war, no Great Depression. Our war is spiritual. Our depression is our lives.


Eyes bloodshot,
She held out her arms
Not to me but to God.

I deified myself for her,
I cleansed my soul in the Baptist bowl
Of the kitchen sink

And blessed her with cheap olive oil.
Oh, she was happy,
In the flush of her cheeks,

The arch of her back,
A wombs curve
“Take me!” she cried

I was God and I took her
And in that eclipse of heaven and earth
We saw home.
