Foreigner

 

The soldier

Or saint exploding, 

Set loose

On suburban lawns,

Kissing genitals

And rocks.

Listening

To refrigerator hum

Cocaine,

Like a jukebox 

At midnight.

His veins entangled

With deadly nightshade,

Seep through

The frosted pain

Of glass,

To gas

The living room.

The nude faces

By the lightshade,

Intoxicated

By the dark odour,

Snared

And laughing,

Caught unaware 

Of the foreign figure.
