BLACK PAPER

the stars unpeeled
like the were
stuck to cellophane
or black paper

they pushed them
into flags, attached
them to
the wings of planes

soon the Earth
will explode
like a star
not a flag
or a plane left

and not a
cookie-cutter poem
scissored out
of nowhere

will then
remain to
stand before you
reeking of
verbal subterfuge
idle
propaganda

masquerading as
just marks
in ink
in book
or parchment

cookie-cuttered out
from that world of
so what?

of
well, yes, but
what does it say?
