Prison Poems

Doctor Azudi, the professional

Azudi is just like
Genghis Khan     when he walks
he walks on a pile of fresh corpses

the Khan did not clean his teeth either

the Khan also belched     the Khan
did not take off his boots either     Azudi
has shattered the mouths of twenty poets today

Azudi wears a tie     something
Genghis Khan never did
only this splendid detail reveals the prodigious march of history
