colin powell addresses the UN

it’s powerpoint of course.

all power. no point.


before the macrohardware

all style no substance

erect an argument on flawed foundations

holes the size

of bombcraters

a colon

: pregnant pause before a war

lives reduced

not to dot points

• but bullet points

(from sparrow in an airport, Friendly Street New Poets Ten, March 2005)
