neither are words

Good things
happen to bad
people rainbows
make puddles and dogs
make war. Theory ends
here where there
are no rewards
for praising the capital
When I win I lose.

Shadows run sideways
while terrorists take their time
on national television
where science is not political
and neither are words
opium poppies in Afghanistan.

The shape of things to come
is not mapquest or a tennis ball
a clown or a comic book
or colocasia
like dawn
When I win I lose—

xxxsomething different.
