Best Poem of Edward Wright Haile


Pharaoh thanks God he is God
with the power to make animals into men
for the end-species requires labor
does not breed but is flogged into being
to look up and imagine numerology and law
across to imagine citizenship
and to forget that law is woman
and the crucial ibis is his brother
As Pharaoh halts at the ferry of souls

Read the full of Citizenship
