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

Poem of the Day

poet Oliver Wendell Holmes

Life is real, life is earnest,
And the shell is not its pen –

Was not spoken of the hen.

Art is long and Time is fleeting,
