BLUE 88

felt the warm and sudden spray

of the sergeant’s French Silk Stockings,

as he lay half-sprawled on the beautiful,

oh so beautiful, oh so beautiful,

freshly-fallen snow.

opened up, yes lord, really opened up

my store-bought British cigars

and gave the Krauts holy bloody hell,

while little grateful girly girlies

danced on our open bellies.

oh! the nights we had together,

my sweet sweet Marie,

nestled in the entrails

of some guy who smoked luckies,

(and could not run to save

his life magazines)

I felt safe in your civilian

arms, and ate my chocolate.

how I wish Ike could be with me now,

now in my finest hour of needhe’d

take me up in those paternal arms

and just hold me just hold me

and tell me how necessary all this was,

and we would cry together

like men who smoked luckies,

and and and i’d show him

my postcards.

I take a GI shit on all of you now,

you gutless Axis cowards,

I hate your fucked-up little hats,

And your full-bird bellies

full of German piss winesalute

this, you ungrateful picture-takers;

this is my rifle, my great pussy equalizer,

any you cocksuckers want a piece of me now?

I KNOW WHO YOU ARE NOW!

I AM YOURS NOW AND YOU ARE MINE!

(medicine administered 3 Nov 1944)

and I saw a new-fangled heaven,

and a ranch-style earth:

for the German artillery

had reduced the old ones

to rubble and stories

for the grandchildren.
