Sharon Tate

O holy fellow bishop, pray here you big & strong archetypal prelate
as those forgotten, ham-strung, ugly & phony-baloney lonely relate
to fantastical pig flu seasons lasting 365 days by which to vacillate to dreamed-up piggy flu seasons of 365 days by which to vaccinate
Black socks relax in a drawer while a blue sock grieves for its mate
as certainly it's too damn late to slaughter the pregnant Sharon Tate

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Concerning crimes of homosexuals, from FEMINISTE: The Justice Department reports that prison rape accounted for the majority of all rapes committed in the U.S. in 2008, making the United States the first country in the history of the world to count more rapes for men than for women.

✰ Mafioso Richard Nixon's sacred, multi-trillion-dollar war on cancer has transformed the afflicted into foot soldiers. No man who succumbs to cancer is any braver, nor any 'deader, ' than his brother who craps out from syphilis. Not surprisingly: there are no syphilis boot-camps, no catch-phrases, no ribbons, no support groups, and no harrowing testimonials from plucky V.D. survivors. I forget who said it but I abide by it: 'A wise man learns from his mistakes; a wiser man learns from the mistakes of others.'

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
