To Hobbes, to hell

The moment I discovered
I am eurotrash once removed
and transplanted into the South—

how joyous! I feel as damned
as a Hebrew, as a sodomite
(thrice daily, I prescribe)

for the Bible tells me so.
The old nemesis—what keeps
others reviles me, though

I am on good terms with Scripture
nowadays. The writers I frequent
stole from it as their own

literature withered in the grave
how they did, how Tertullian
must have when hellfire ate him—

the old hunger for aristocracy
consumes the social intercourse,
and bad verse lets it go—
