Heartland

Alex Dimitrov




In America, I stopped to listen for God.
What about these men with their wolf tongues
and the war with its quick deaths and how vast
death is and how nothing fits in it.
Let the blood wet the ashes,
let the semen wet the mouth.
This man tonight is going inside
himself and let him stay there because
I could kill faster than any war would, God.
