Best Poem of Edward Wright Haile

Citizenship

Pharaoh thanks God he is God
with the power to make animals into men
for the end-species requires labor
does not breed but is flogged into being
to look up and imagine numerology and law
across to imagine citizenship
and to forget that law is woman
and the crucial ibis is his brother
As Pharaoh halts at the ferry of souls

Read the full of Citizenship

Clasping

My love puts my blackberries in her basket
She widens it until I fill it full
then sighing clasps it like a loveletter to her breast
and I squeeze out in love’s sure pulsing river
She is never the same
I am the only one
She is the only way
til I am berried and she is black
Two lovers one space
