POEM: "All The Screaming Poets"

All The Screaming Poets

The Sheik of Araby
the Sultan of Ogosh
the butcher Hermann
the strange boy Oskar
the waitress with corns
the incarcerated souls
the demented tracing of
the name over and over again
the good man trying to protect
the swamplands of Florida
the mother with twin monsters
the teachers and the students
the lovers and the dreamers
the tired porn stars and athletes
the kids who don’t get the math
the father who keeps trying
the suppression of power
the suicidal executives
the homicidal police
o all the screaming poets
the tears o the tears that flow
o the tears the tears that flow
