There Are Questions I Would Like to Ask

How can you imagine gunfire and poetry
in one line
a longish rather awkward line.
This is not a question
merely an observation
under duress
and a desire to admit
any of a hundred
fantastical sins
and errors in judgement.

There are questions
I would like to ask
such as what is the nature of love
and lovelessness
in the face of conflicts
and theologies
that treat Heaven and Hell
as real estate?

How do you negotiate with a demon
when you both watch the same TV shows
applaud the same ads
and shop the better part of the evening
at the same stores in the mall?

Oh no, the gunfire and poetry have resumed
and I cannot translate either.

—J. J. Steinfeld, Misshapenness, Ekstasis Editions, 2009. J. J.’s new poetry collection, A Visit to the Kafka Café (Ekstasis, 2018) will be available this month.

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