The senators will not be seen. A soldier
should appear as having been beaten.
On his left hip, keys. Two handguns

for the guards. The whip should be
as short as possible. Instead
of the previously discussed rifles, a box

on the window sill with instructions
inside, an armed chair, a small silver
automatic pistol. We will not need

the gun to fire. Please add a cloak
that can be pulled off easily. Please add
a place on his person. Reminder:

We do not need the senators.

Found poem from rehearsal notes for Timon of Athens.

This Is Not a Microphone Gaffe

After my election, I have more flexibility
To deal with liars like Netanyahu on a
Daily basis, to put up with the hair of that
Bigoted woman, to show my admiration
Of Moshe for raping ten employees of
His office, to crucify all the major league
Assholes and cabinet bastards, to outlaw
Russian forever, to get rid of our debts
By killing all Chinese on earth and
Even more important perhaps, to learn
The lessons about when the microphone is
On, and when it is off like right now

Go to hell, all you fucking idiot voters

Sinead O'Connor

Don't go calling her
a one-hit wonder.
She had a ton
of incredible songs, and one
just happened to be
even though it was a Prince cover.

Sinead also had a great set of
principles. She ripped up
a picture of the Pope on live TV--
a screw-you to the Vatican
for its handling of abuses.

She shaved her head and wore billowing blouses
as if to say Focus on my music, assholes.

Does your tree have a leaf that’s simple? If foliage is a needle, there’s work, and then there’s work. There’s a peach, juicy and oh so cheap. I couldn’t help myself, I let you in, major projection, leaf entire … fingers unevenly balanced, palmately, pinnately. There’s a compound leaf, star shaped, angular. Ah, the major ashes, walnut, butternut, pecan, mulberry, sassafras! Sickle-shaped, lobed or unlobed. With If Yes, there’s grinding coffee, and there’s whoring. OR, OR, OR. Are all your needles linear? See teeth visible under lens. Look, two white lines. (What do they mean?) Whether you gesture here or there affects me, and how hard. Branches bear spur-like fascicles, tiny flowers. We are berrylike, bluish, toothed around the margins, smooth along the veins. We are elliptical, oblong, glaucous with bloomy cones. With suction cups, diamond cross-sections, what the fuck? If so, you probably have a larch. You probably have a cedar! If so, a juniper. A pine. You most probably have an elm.
