Poem: "A Position of Defeat 10"





10.

infallible the sun toddles up close
wrinkled dugs shining faint around the glans
mouth loose as gray elastic underpants
sulfurous breath beneath the musk of rose

the morning buzzes with the secret vote
el papa joins the latest news cycle
he will not die, say Murdoch and the bible
quote I didn’t know who had hacked him unquote

old masters still play at being the bawd
the hands of bach open the mouths of choirs
binding with ropes of gossamer and coir
milton inserts in us the awe of god
