    to gods and countries

    Next to a god, he loves his country
    land of frontier men
    of centuries of this toil and that toil
    songs of glory etc

    and all those heroic happy dead
    who rushed like tigers to the roaring slaughter
    they did not stop to think of

    Me

    this Saturday eating a
    sandwich, outside the pub, looking
    at this girl

    she is dark
    latin, maybe
    large brown eyes look up from the screen
    her legs keep moving, moving,
    she is doing a slow dance


    the cloth hugs her body,
    the lightest of pink is that cloth,
    she moves her a ss on the
    bench, this way and that

    I cannot leave her vision
    and have no desire to. . .

    I am listening to iphoned music
    that she cannot hear
    but she is moving
    to the rhythm of my song


    she is thinking about a man
    who is a god

    i am a god.

    But she seems to be holding a rosary...

    She is. It was some sort of thing for her church.
