Rudolph Agonistes

Rudolph Agonistes

Rudolph Agonistes (2009)

Red nose

my ass. It was
budget cuts. The haunts

of Christmas Town are shut
by drifts. Santa even took out
the candy stripe pole.

Incomplete toys
pile up on the workshop floor
like unread Milton

or water from former glaciers
or war
on earth not peace.

Football Drill

Football Drill

Football Drill (2009)

Make the most of your practice time:

like conditioning those who oppose you,
like making that catch on the edge of the world,
like a routine of agility,
like two-minute explosiveness,
like battle tested snaps and cheers,
like Draconian concussive choices,
like bass runs by black Steelers,
like rushing the spirit of good shuffles,
like a category for the quickness of flags,
like cervical cord injuries with common themes.
