Master of the Flying Guillotine
that each violence must be art-
poet as warrior
as bawd goating
around until clamoring
for a butting of heads
some pretty name
worth mating over
animal noises exacting
to cleave skulls
to dance steps

She played a part-time chef who inspired an axe-murdering chanteuse & this is how transparent all Billy Collins’s poems are, perhaps too easy a poet to dislike. I had to try harder to hate Frost. But back to these flower girls asleep in the blue snow. I remember reading Vikings were really just nice guys, pick up your bar tab, then blood-eagle. The principle is this: the poem’s political dimension plays Candyland like a pampered baby. All entrance, the poem asks no exiting.
