Smallpox by Alfonso Colasuonno

I am not a silent poet

The guy with the

nice fancy suit

came into the

pizza parlor

vegan

gluten-free

no grease

death or anything

that would stain

that would mark

that would kill

and boy was

he good looking

such a square

jaw and impeccable

dress and golden

boy of a voice

and the mexican

behind the counter

told him that

a slice was

five dollars

and the man

with the square

jaw and impeccable

dress and golden

boy’s voice

stormed

out ranting

about how

his ancestors

kicked your

ancestors

ass but that

man had a heart

he spared the

smallpox laden

blanket this

time
