Anything Pointed, Edged, Angled or Blunted

Passionately debated
second guessing
has caught a fire
poker to the forehead.

Discourses of the unsaid
fashioned from undressed
pine logs
washed in various
threat streams
smear low grade security screens

As a man wearing a
suicide vest calls
for more ice in his drink
and a gang in the remote
Peruvian jungle
kills people for their fat
- keeping the liquid
in little vials hanging
from their belts.

There was a time in
my neighborhood when
gangs were beating people
down for cellphones.
Debate ensued as to
whether it was safest
to always have a
cellphone to hand over
or not have one
at all,
but there's no way
to walk the
night streets
without your fat.

A chicken may cross
to the other side
for many reasons
but almost never
will its logic get
airtime on a
basic cable network.
