After the Contraceptive Fails (2002)
Uh-oh. BushCo doesn't feel your pain. I guess you shouldn't have dropped that abstinence course -- especially if you're under eighteen.
Mourning-AfterReducing the soul to sperm and eggOffends holy rollers whose yeastRises on Friday to be blessed by SundaySermons on sin and resurrection.There is no Holy Ghost in the womb,Only ontology, with gestation periodsAnd bleeding to offend John CalvinSince none of it comes from Christ's wounds.This chemical disconnect was engineeredBy experiments in a Petri dish Over blessed wafers from a sperm donorWhose wife's piñata yearns to be burst.[Disposable Poem August 25, 2006]
Another excellent poem.I hope you'll be able to contribute regularly again.
