Dubya Mask Starring Jim Carrey

The bullet tore
his chest
but took his

whole back with it.
There goes the bullet,
it’s mouth

wide open,
screaming beyond
the buildings

and carrying
the soldier’s flesh
and bits of backbone

out into
the desert
that stretches

from Fallujah
to the
car bombs of Baghdad.

It lands in the tracks
left by a Bradley
that pounds

the buildings
with shells

by the
peace-loving country
of America.

Henry yawned
and farted
wearing his Dubya mask.

When you wear
this mask
you only care about---nothing.
