My sister sends me a phone-cam shot of Benedict XVI’s fly hooptie as it cruises down the boulevard of Yankee Stadium.
And so to mark this occasion, we take a break from the Palimpsest series and dedicate two poems, one by me and one by Jack AgÃ¼eros, to the Vicar of Christ and all the other interesting (read: ripe for poetic pickin’) language that comes with His Holiness. Thank you, White Jesus!
(poem was here)
Psalm for the Popeâ€™s Five License Plate
I have suggestions for the Popeâ€™s
Five license plates
for his Five Mercedes Limousines.
I know thatâ€™s only four,
but Iâ€™m withdrawing
because it doesnâ€™t seem to fit.
by Jack AgÃ¼eros
