Nat Sufrin

Not a peep / from the sun today / but be happy: / the new mayor / is a dancer.


Now, Now Rahm Emanuel

None of
those people
be the people.
They offer
no secrets
no big treats
no mood slings.
Not a peep
from the sun today
but be happy:
the new mayor
is a dancer.
I call him
up I say
Rahm fuck
you he says
Nat fuck
you we salivate
for hours over
the promise
of daggering:
the brand
new you
too dancehall.
Now under
this now now
we can now
know now.
Sometime earlier
today we will
feel ok when
damn how
especially if.
