Poem: "A Position of Defeat 3"


today they coat the sun in candy shell
tomorrow what will they make safe and sweet
and sell it to the masses for a treat?
yesterday they were pushing fresh stem cells

beehives are trucked to wanton cornfield blue
vietnamese refugees in flatbed ferries
when brooklyn bees ate maraschino cherries,
blood honey, Robitussin-red, for you!

all is to be sold, marrow, pith and sap
it started long ago, the GM tree
the apple was a bit of machinery
for our redemption; it is now an app
