July 1


Asteroid Poem #15
Today’s news is that “Corpus Christi,”
a Terrance McNally play that depicts Jesus and his disciples as gay
can’t be shown in New York for fear of Christians,
who want to burn down the theater
And exterminate gays, Jews, and McNally.

Digesting this
On my way to breakfast,
I saw the billboard that says
July 1.
Well, shit, I said,
it’s about fucking time.
