In Defense of Kathy Griffin



You own it, the blood-head


And the headlines. You who


Bore the awe of inspired


Relevance, who ruffled the


Sensibilities of Chuck Todd.


Drop that head and hold


Your head high, Kathy Griffin.


The moon is a severed head.


Time leaks nerve-endings.


What shall we all make of


A woman in a jihadi pose?


The head like a drying rose.


Griffin hair-fire. Loudmouth


Griffin. American Griffin.


Imagery is stupid, imagery


Is barbarous. Oh mind-maze!


Oh dearth! Oh nasty soul!


We are alone, Kathy Griffin.


America has abandoned us.
