Extract from Revelations Chapter 23: Verse Four

In heaven, fired men knew the drill.

they flushed extinct faiths with dehydrated tongues,

krumped in hollow stumps,

saved lost stems,

laid hands on fresh oxygen with infected phlegm,

as demons coughed in attempts to avoid the subject,

distort the subject,

making the man downstairs the verb of the subject.

(c) Koleka Putuma. 2013
