Poem Number Three.

Yeah, I said it, and I meant it. This is the tip of the iceberg, Onstad, you fool, and I am unleashing HUNDREDS of these poems on you in the coming months. You know you screwed up this time.

The Dust Bowl (Untitled)

With Auntie Mae
We wash the dishes in the
tin tub.

Supper was corn cakes;
we traded the
map of Albuquerque
for the frying

Hard lines in her face;
if she were a car; ...rusted.

She joined us, shaken,
having lost everything , — ,
her children perished
at her dry teat

She can never
make it up
to her God.

Good luck sleeping tonight, Onstad, you clown. Yeah, you picked the wrong guy to fuck over a barrel. I'll be destroying you again in a couple days.
