Street preaching

The veiled lady
steeped in brimstone
wanders campus—
says, “Ontology
makes you a whore,”
wields the canon
as if it were more
than a relic
of times when men
knew not what they did
or who they did it for,
or a red string
taut through the window
that led the whore
back to the clothes
she swore off of—
her metaphysics
are as brutal
as her husband—
