I'm from colombo, sri lanka. have written a bunch of prose which you can see at http://vajra.me but very little poetry.
it's sri lanka's national day today (feb 4) which means militarized parades and obscene ethnoreligious-supremacist triumphalism and really, too much endless fuckery to even cite here. I felt the need to write something to spit in it's eye just a little bit, so I did.
this chapbook contains 13 poems written against national day, featuring war & war-machinery, nationalism & ideology, grief & mourning, many ghosts, sex, death, & monkeys. their titles are:
2. the sound of the ending, repeated
3. psychopomp and circumference
5. yellow like a king
6. spearheads into figleaves, 1972.
7. pour one out for
10. that yellow light
ps: the monkeys are real and on my roof right now
