Rogue Agent

[Found Poem]

bodies, orifices, fluids


pale washes 

with vivid punctuations


tongues, nipples, cunts, dicks, 

and assholes

anatomies redesigned

limbs amputated, reordered

orifices realigned

scrambled physiological functions

armless, legless women


like damaged classical ruins 

obscene, abject

exuberantly offensive 

Rama’s oversexed


roiled propriety 

and uptight norms

directly challenged 

far-right national politics
