Passion and Hatred (a contrapuntal poem)

Posted by Grady McShane on February 8, 2011 at 4:45 PM Comments comments (2)

Passion and hatred


Both epic voices sang simultaneously.

          Fiery sputum of a dragon god

Screaming the blood rain of aerial battle.

          She scoffed at the barbaric notion.

She tilted her head back and laughed in color.

On my tongue,

sandy weakness dissolves.


A taste of relief,

like a merciful bullet

to the back of the head

of a rabid animal.


Black herd roams

blindfold my heart and march him naked

before the firing squad. the son of a bitch

must die.


not my actual 4-chambered blood-pumper,

but this electric ghost who haunts my guts

when emotional waves reach my throat,

on your most recent artwork


monochrome acid drop:

inky linguini freefall through a calligraphic blasphemy


carnal abstractions: black tongues bloomed from

milky thigh stalks with ram-horned cherubs locked

in sensual slow-motion combat




beyond my senses

royal purple bruises raised from golden god-flesh

as pigs writhe and moan on holy ground

And what goes on in this tall glass building?

And what goes on in this tall glass building?

1st floor:

A thin bald Arabian underwear model in red dog skin boots runs around an ornate Chinese fountain serving spiked punch and asking answerless questions to avoid idle conversation with soft spoken silverbacks in leftist pink and yellow ties who all wonder what type of cacti grow in her tattooed desert garden.

2nd floor:...

the red wolf howled



nude in the blood

rain wasteland



chrome dick

parade of anti-


slayers of wonder

never running empty

on the flame broiled highway


purgatories ripe with

neon and leather

all gift wrapped

in shitty art

and fancy wreckage

on foreign tongues

of baby eaters

(A collaboration between Earthy Ma

and Grady McShane)


We wish your pretense was

past tense, you sniveling

whiny, pink underweared fools!


you afraid of the devil?

afraid of our drool?

Street Song

Takes her to the moon

Fueled by icy alcohol

Filtered through her tomb

Momma’s in the atmosphere
