If you love her

If you love her
Go to her
By accident
Or by thoughtfullness

Chose her at her
Most vulnerable
Time

Hum quietly
To keep yourself
Calm

Be as
Motherly as a hen
And as fatherly
As a drunken football team

Scream
If you feel like it
By borrowing
Her make-up mirror
And hiding behind it

Now is the moment
That the weight of the universe
Sits on you shoulder

Deserters
Will be
Alone

If everything worked
The way it should

There would be love

Love separated
From time and space
Free to move
With grace

Tangled up with plastic bags
Bits of it
Thrown away like rags

This kind of line
Is regrettable
Nut true

And spoils it for me
And spoils it
for you

The news
is blowing across
the land
The news
goes by
from mouth to mouth

it started in the arctic north
it went more north
than south

it’s a dust storm of news
a mile high in the sky
it started as a rumour
now it is a lie

He said the end is coming
the salami has been chopped
the van is stuck in Calais
the ferry man has knocked

He said he saw it coming
I wondered what he means
Preparing meat for market
Bleeding it of dreams

He said he saw it hanging
In the slaughter house
You know he is a tough guy
But it turned him to a mouse

She stood outside the window
She pointed at some meat
The butcher wrapped it up for her
As he dreamed of fields of wheat

The music rose up like a fountain
People laughed and loved
But you turned off the water
And stood in fields of blood

A Goyim child at Passover
Crawled drunk across the ground
The angel of death ignored him
And continued on his round

The music rose like pink sleep
And kissed a heavenly face
But you in your bloodthirstiness
Cut of the human race

A community’s cuts and bruises
Will heal up in time
Taught by music festivals
And Passovers of bread and wine
