FILE NUMBER 20
by Ken W. Simpson 

Homo Sapiens

Cloven creatures
deodorised archetypes
revived as beasts
to satisfy heredity’s
need for greed
stinking of sanctity
before the resurrection. 

Amazing Grace

Dead sea souls
and a black
Satanic Mass
for Christians
accused
of genkocide
to propitiate
evil spirits
and  beseech
forgiveness
with the sacrifice
of an infant.

The Missing Link

Sacred and profane
these hallowed balls
unfinished
but perfectly formed.
