PUNCH

Men appear as they predictably do: warrior, hero, boxer, member of the fight club, no shirts, no shoes. And they travel as twins: tag teams, dopplegangers, alter-egos, body doubles, frat boys, bully and nerd, beards and closet-cases, Chip and Dale.

Their body hairs attract, but I never see them travel as lovers. Make money together, make war together, make deals together, but whatever you do, don’t touch each other.

Actin microfibers, in band-aid pink. Burt Reynolds’ nude spread in Playboy: man sprawled on abear-skin rug. Beckham lounging with Bob. Bandits or bottoms (adapted from two kissing mariachis), mouth to mouth. The Freudian nose, featuring target practice. Slivers configured and reconfigured, to reveal something about a macho fantasy or farce.

EVEN IF

As if it were 1984,
discredit credibililty; savage civilization.
Incessant poking at the moral compass
in the hot crucible of repetition, anxiety, and doubt.

But

Even If Presidents Condone It
Even If Scholars Condone It
Even If Majorities Condone It

i condemn torture.

SANKA

Every five years in in California
And now a national past-time.
Accuse, harass, and threaten the undocumented,
scapegoat the paper-thin economy,
while dining on hand-chopped salad, broke-back strawberries, and spilt coffee.
