Took A Jig-Saw - Poem by Mike Adam

Lather me.
Shower and hose
This dirty man

Baptismal would I come to you.

Took a jigsaw to emotion,
Boxed, buried in closet,
Frustration locked in
Cruel denial.

Earth shudders krakatoan,
Darkness and fire combine
Water covers land
Smoke obliterates sky-
Yet still, concupiscent
The race survives.

2004 tsunami,250,000
From 7 billion.

Walking each morning
Patong beach, day upon day

Leaving for Samui,
Patong beach washed away.

Old snake-head of yore
Swept in salt water
Practiced, alive by default.

Are we now to be the mystic melt
Creation or depletion
To stallion or to geld?
