"It's about words, and words are all I have…"

R.I.P. LOU

NO   COUNTRY

There will be no port

that will take you

Madwoman

Jew

 

You are unreceivable

Ungrievable

If we say so you don’t exist

 

And you there child

Talking to your dead brother’s ashes

No room

 

Oh and Sally in the corner

of the cigarette burns

etched like stars into your back

We couldn’t possibly

 

Yo  Donnie

With snakes writhing

in & out of every orifice

We simply cannot squeeze you in

dear

 

And what of smiling Jerry?

His mother’s entrails

steaming on the floor

 

Your ship of fools

is forever banished

from our shores

__

 

Give me your tired your poor  I’ll piss on ‘em

That’s what the statue of bigotry says  Your poor

huddled masses  let’s club ‘em to death

Lou Reed , Dirty Blvd  1988

 

 

Spring  2007         Lou Reed  March 1942 – October 2013
