#Psalm 17 by Antony Owen

1

Birth is violent
we arrive bloody
primal and pure.
Mothership
Sever rope
Mayday
Help
Lost

2

Found
Jesus
Hanging
In America
Motherland
Sever children
Filicide and milk
They depart bloody
American death is violent

3

Lost
America.
Motherships
Sinking slowly
The seventeen atolls
Once upon a time in America
Pilgrims arrived in wooden cribs
Rising slowly they made children in salem

17

Pray
Shoot sky
Seventeen times
God will not return fire
the mothership burns in the black sea
seventeen gun salutes blow gods head off.
