Indolent days spent consuming history

intentions and rubble

strewn with careful purpose

prepared me

Pope-stolen marble

Tracing the death of a language

in churches erected on destruction


Carry the cross and drape the flag

An idea long denied, impossible

now  sanctioned

A Borgia for America


Fear, pettiness, vainglory

The liberation of hate


vita breve, lithos longa

the pain is silent

the dust  of martyrs is dust

at the creation

our own rubble
