O Anna Niemus


The Lamb Next To Lambs


in the church was a massive
oil painting of Jesus
descending down a rock
strewn mountain to
rescue a lamb..

and in the church
cafeteria a few
yards a way..
they served pieces of
dead lambs

and the hindquarters
of butchered pigs
.. called hams
and hepatitis
generating
ocean evicted clams
and lips and gut linings
in cans called Spam
