For God’s Sake


[older poem. Minimalist shot from Kiama again]

For God’s Sake

for God’s sake
who in hell
is that

you say
as you look
in the mirror

under the puffed up mask
of your grandfather

or watch
with amused

as you perform
the daily rituals
of polite constraint

lunatic lectures
your thoughts
chasing themselves

into admiration
as you cut
grass, vines

and lines
at the end
for God’s sake
