Bitchin Twenty Twelve

Bitchin’ Twenty Twelve by Cheryl Townsend

AMERICAN METTLE POEM #1

for John Dorsey

if sodomy
is a city in New Jersey
I’m never leaving
this state

AMERICAN METTLE POEM #2

for Misti

no one
is bulimic in heaven.
you can have your Jesus
on a cracker
& wash him down
with sugary iced tea.

no one
will hate you for
diarrhea of the mouth.
everyone will kiss you
on your sloppy mouth.
all year long.

it’s heaven,
goddammit,
so eat,
drink & sing,
sing,
sing
