Eulogy

12.27.11 Kim Jong-il Funeral

I wasn’t invited
So I sent a eulogy.

No rejoicing around death I have been generally
Taught.

If I could stare into your head
Would I see a person like
Anyone

— loving someone[s]
— trying to do [a little] good
— something fine to leave behind.

I am told that you had vice grips on your
Country.

I have seen your rooster
Army

With you watching a little
Man

How wrong am I to
Judge

— your hair style
— the lifts in your shoes

Another short guy?
Machismo and testosterone
Junkie

With nuclear weapons.

The hardest thing for me
— complicity.

I read you could not survive without
China.

Every product I buy Made in
China.

Reminding me of my complicity
This perfectly transparent end of an
Era

All eras
End

As they generally
Began —

Profit
Profit;
Profit.

Welcome Kim Jong-un
Who are you –
