Atrazine and estrogen
pink the ground water,
shifting boy to girl–
bull alligators growing ovaries
and double-bull frogs
croaking less
and dreaming tadpoles
instead of sperm

it’s all

penis lengths
because femi-
Nazi witch doctors
work below the belt,


have nothing
to do
with keeping pests
off corn

particulate cocaine
and marijuana
floated over cities
will buzz us happy
and dickless

while fish
school in currents
of Xanax

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    This is great. I love the zwing sound of your unsheathed sword. This is the height of social activism by poetry.

    Explains a lot about my shrinking pant size!
    There’s a series on Channel 4 – don’t know if you can get it across the pond – but it’s good, called Utopia – this reminded me of it.

  7. J’ai du mal a comprendre. But whatever it is, the catholic aging and shrinking male is not visiting USA till this blows over and away!

  8. Wow, so eloquent as you come unsheathed. Powerful stuff, Susan. 🙂

    penis lengths
    in men
    because Rush’s
    Nazi witch doctors

    Great line!

  10. hahahaha!!! Susan. I most say, this is one of the best “Flarf” poems you’ve ever written. I really liked how you experimented with concept and word structures. Not being afraid of trying something new, and pushing boundaries to the most extreme levels of true hardcore poetry. If I had 20,000 hands – I give this poem of yours 20,000 thumbs way up! 🙂 I would very much so like to see more on you experimenting with flarf. I love this excellent and really genius writing. 🙂

    there is much to bite on in this one. Evolving whether we want to or not… it’s a crazy world we inhabit. good thought-provoking poem, dear Susan.
