White Rabbit Is the Only One with the Time

No one else can say this.  The illusions

handed down to you from your public

 

education with a Catholic

upbringing were transparent to you even

 

then.  You were the captain of fucking

 

cheerleaders who refused to pledge allegiance

to any flag.  Only cheering for your friends

 

who fought for the game, while secretly

hating the principal for lies he told the day

 

your classmate was stabbed to death

in front of you.  Handing out Easter cards—a bunny

 

nailed to the cross with the caption “Get off

the Cross.”  You serve rabbit stew to you family

 

during Lent and you need the wood for fire.
