Laughter

Put your hands under my thigh,
Immigrant,

You from the Eastern Peoples,
Come with the Shepherdess you call Rachel and water your sheep!

Sooth your bitter cry, Esau
Who sold your birthright for a bowl of stew,

You are not about to die,

The West’s intent is more evil than your deceit, come
Mind not the bully with the swastika on his back,

Mind not the woman on his arm with the yellow, snarling teeth, fear
Not the politician with the fat briefcase,

Eat now you handsome, black man,
Your whole body like a hairy garment!

The smell of you is like the smell of a field,
So eat now,

Before the Policeman in Arkansas hunts you down.

Oil to make his face shine

“…wine that gladdens the heart of man,
oil to make his face shine,
and bread that sustains his heart…”
