In just

in just-war (Oslo 2009)

in just-

war    when the world is blood-

luscious the little

lame  balloonman

whistles     far     and wee

and tommyjamesandtheshondells come

limping from minefields and

pirate drones and it’s

war

when the world is pummel-wonderful

the queer

young balloonman whistles

far    and    wee

and sashaandmalia may never dance

no hop-scotch no jump-rope ‘cause

it’s war

and

the

goat-bearded

balloonBuster     whistles

far

and

wee

in just-war

and what you gonna do

—Don Whittington (after e.e.cummings)
