Alcoholic Devil

Alcoholic Devil written in 1999 for Keystone Garden


Consider the agony of the wild woodpeckers

As they try to animate their damned ancestors

Shall they attempt to bluff the alcoholic devil

or perchance the sacred badger of Buddha

Does the anguish of the sanctified salami spread

Or does it adorn the comedy of their country men

Where the ogling minstrels are alienated

Alas alienated by the mortal masterpiece of the unknown

And bejeweled baskets dazed by the frivolous forefinger of criminals

And could not the bewitched asylum bless the dreams of the embalmed tenants

Could the camels anoint the alter with the ashes and entrails of their flaming offspring
