Birth is violent

we arrive bloody

primal and pure.

Mothership

Sever rope

Mayday

Help

Lost

Found

Jesus

Hanging

In America

Motherland

Sever children

Filicide and milk

They depart bloody

American death is violent

3

Lost

America.

Motherships

Sinking slowly

The seventeen atolls

Once upon a time in America

Pilgrims arrived in wooden cribs

Rising slowly they made children in salem

17

Pray

Shoot sky

Seventeen times

God will not return fire

the mothership burns in the black sea

seventeen gun salutes blow gods head off.
