(Spill-O's Vision of Empire)
By Colin Dodd
The strong man finally finds the dragon,
And the dragon, with its serpentine necks,
begins to sodomize him.
The strong man shrieks, squirms, tries to escape,
struggles, and fails to clamp shut his jaws and anus.
When it’s over, he becomes a Caesar--
something other than a man.
Like a nightcrawler becoming bait--
something more and less than a worm
through its ordeal with the hook.
And just as the worm captures
a Bluefish, a Striped Bass, with its tortured squirm,
the Caesar catches something, too.
But for what and for whom?
Spill-O wonders, rubbing his forehead,
watching a plate of French fries and Fishsticks
rotate in the deadly microwave light.
