Curated by Deirdre Kessler

Poems Should 

stain your tongue
    like pomegranates’ crimson
hearts, sacrifice to the countless
    gods no one remembers
sit in the back of MBA classes
    humming “Love for Sale”

show up stoned on magic
    mushrooms at scientific
conferences on consciousness, check into
    rehab for bleeding
heart syndrome, transfuse
    puritans with sensual passion

poems should incubate
    forgiveness, inject it
into the veins of the bitter
    scar with the pox of humility
the self-righteous, unblind those
    who think they own the Earth

poems should open fire, spare
    no one feeling entitled
to extravagant wealth, gloating
    over their good fortune
leaving others to pick up the pieces
    of their creative destruction 

campaign for candidates
who promise simple decency
dancing and clean water
    be left unattended at airports
    operate without anaesthetic

—Richard Lemm, Jeopardy (Acorn Press, 2018).

—Prince Edward Island poet laureate Deirdre Kessler selects a poem a month by an Island poet for readers of The Buzz.
