Swan Song at Yellow Mama

I have a new poem out in Yellow Mama called Swan Song. Also, they've accepted another one, a real tour de force and abuse, for their Valentine's Issue (which you have to see). 

Also, Ralph-Michael Chiaia has a poem in this issue of Yellow Mama, he's starting to write a bit like me. How flattering!

Moctezuma's "Bloodless"

Originally featured in Ascent Aspirations in August 2007, to whose editors grateful acknowledgment is made.

Bloodless

We accept the stupid president
military spending capitalist money
military spreading democracy
hanging their leaders
but no-one dare question ours
we accept them peeking our emails
tapping the phones
our own superiority.
We do not accept any of this when challenged
full of shit bastards that we are
with laziness
impotence
self-loathing
if we respected ourselves we'd stand up
we'd get the gloves, the guns, the masks, the SAMs
but we rather stay on the couch and order a pizza
have strangers lick our genitals
(you may call that person a partner or not,
it's still a stranger)
in the dark
erogenous zones
have their own desires
and needs
that motivate us to shadows;
similar to that desire for power

We accept the shadows
while our leaders shine and blaze
