Marilyn Chin is a Chinese American poet. Wiki tells me this is her fourth collection of poetry.
If a black man could be president
Could a white man be his slave?
Could a sinner enter heaven
By uttering his name?
If the terminator is my governor
Could a cowboy be my king?
When shall the cavalry enter Deadwood
And save my prince?
An exo-cannibal eats her enemies
Am indo-cannibal eats her friends
I’d rather starve myself silly
Than to make amends
Blood on the altar Blood on the lamb
Blood on the chalice
Not symbolic but fresh
