A severed hand on my shoulder
wrenches it off.
You sit on a toadstool
to measure the depth of grass.

A raven scans the earth:
nothing was left to eat.
The hungry urchins had
already punctured the garbage can.

A live show of committing suicide
will take place tonight.
To become silent in roaring noises
was the outcome of a dive.

A terrorist in pilgrimís pouch walks past
a bomb. The wires reach in the schism
of a faith. Again you cry in your skin
for sake of a forgotten god.

Reviewed by RWE SAYS BYE 12/29/2010
This grim reminder of the viciousness rampant in much of our world is needful amid the general attitude of relative comfort among most North Americans today... the irony is pointed and images are pointed... truly there is a schism but it is less that of a faith than of conflicting faiths, and this is the diabolical edge whose hidden shadow arches over your poem.
