But all agon eventually reduces itself to human violence….
But then the world has always made violent use of children.
The Book of Joan, Lidia Yuknavitch
to apologists for Bill Maher
white folk carry “nigger” in their throats
like switchblades secreted in designer boots
there are no excuses for such dormant violences
like white men with slick-backed hair and dark suits
who will slit your throat in a white-hot second
like a volcano spewing lava swallowing barefoot children sleeping
beware these smiling white folk clearing their throats
like an engine cold cranking before plowing over you
