A Love Letter to Pat Robertson

Published August 1, 2015 by April Fox

The lights are on in your great glass house
but there’s nothing there to see.

Your eyes are glued to the man next door,
face pressed against his window in a gruesome caricature,
bulging against the panes, lashes wet with lust and your palms
nailed tight
to the cross
you wear like a brace
to straighten out
your prejudice

and the holes bleed out, slick sweat and muddy feet and the ones below
are drinking
from the filthy wounds
like turning vomit
into wine.

You are the keeper of everything;
you are the arbiter of every
sinful thrust

and your disciples gather close and wait
for the baptism to start.

Object Permanence is now on Amazon

Published January 25, 2013 by April Fox

Some of you might know that I wrote a couple of books; the second one has now joined the first on Amazon. So here it is, in case anyone is interested. I suck at self-promotion, sorry. It’s a nice book, just a little collection of some of the nicer things I’ve written. Not sappy-nice, though. That’s gross.
