Scrubs the Soul Fresh

“Art often isn’t [nice] though it scrubs the soul fresh”

Mother leopard looks
Coolly from behind green blinds
Of Botswanan grass

Binary code zebras
Cross flood plains black and white
Study in geometry

Thirty-year-old male
Takes eight-year-old bride
‘I hate to see him coming’
Traumatized in the name
Of culture
Of god
No blinds
No code
Exposed
Ruined

I take my steak rare
Like a bit of red upon
My plate when I am sated
