THE BODY IN CUSTODY


I was supposed to be writing a paper I wrote instead. I fell alseep. My roommate texted me to turn on the tv bin laden was dead I was awake I did.

the news is dreadful talking about jubilation I don’t feel jubilant I should. a whole bunch of people & dying etc. one must be jubilant when the enemy dies. one must take to the streets in a frenzy be a citizen.

unite our breath as a class, a gasp. not dying of old age an animatronic enemy. warnings to don’t stop being afraid.  retaliatory intelligence suggests something might be coming.

WE POSSES THE BODY / THE ANCHOR, TRIUMPHANT / THE BODY I IN CUSTODY / INSTRUCTIONS ARE TO POSSES /

I remember where I was that day I was vain I wanted to call my boyfriend everyone maybe dying so what stupid stories. real real excitement behind the scenes tonight a new body a sarcophagus the dappled nose of the nation roaring. a gunman in white just a gun and his eyes.

a symbolic revolutionary what is the point. the revolutionary enters into the real so what. we’ve just received a two-minute warning something is going to detonate. the revolutionary costume is a perfect public body. a mask with a lot of eyes all severed a lot

THE HEAD OF COUNTER-TERRORISM PUT HIS NAME INSIDE A HAT. THERE WAS NO ATTEMPT TO FORCE AN INVASION THE ESCAPE WAS ABLE TO CAPTURE A GOING.

(across the body a border. across the border a blindfolded mouth approaches the podium and hums.)

americans understand the costs of war I understand the cost of war vanity. drawing on stocking seams ersatz everything I understand the costs of war sanity. I understand the cost of justice war.

LET US THINK BACK TO THAT TRAGIC SENSE OF UNITY COME TOGETHER CELEBRATE THE DEATH OF THIS MAN GOD BLESS GOD BLESS THAT TRAGIC SERVICE SACRIFICE
