American Beauty

The knife was found
Planted in the heart

Of the rose bed.


gay blade

In the heart
Of the heart of the country,

Whoever sings

The body electric
Is in for a shock.



From the back of the class,
Sent to the front

By his drill instructor--
As in animal



not so unlikely bedtime story

All the world over, rosy-cheeked
Kids like you

Are being put to sleep;
In the abattoir,

Pallid vegetarian butchers
Count sheep.
