new from above/ground press: AFTER PROGRESS, by Kemeny Babineau

by Kemeny Babineau

Arizona Bulletin

The mind trapped in the body like that,
it goes without saying, a dependent
island unto oneself, merely
the sum of one, a whole at least
even with a zero through your skull
the point blankly is
there are guns
in the hands of madmen and America
has made a symbol
of its yearning for violence.
