Santa Maria Novella Station’s soft
Fascism: barricades, budella
Della tu’ ma’, bunkers
soldiers shouting through cellphones
at unlistening travelers.
Everyone runs from the trumpet
the mayor’s thugs shove
up our ass. The city’s visiting card:
a boot stamping on a human
face for eternity, Florence,
Your humanism is the worst sham
A travel agent ever sold.

Coming up on St. Patrick's Day at St. Mark's English church in Florence: I will be reading, accompanied by drumming, sounds, and music!
