If Hitler Were Here

he’d congratulate them
for learning so well the lessons
of the dead heart he mastered.
he’d snicker and puff up

with an oozing, putrid
pride like any self-satisfied
father pleased with how

come to understand his
genius: that the essence
of freedom is found only

in the purity of hatred,
in the sheer exuberance
of absolute conviction
and merciless violence.

are they not his true heirs,
those fists of desolation
raised in the burning sky?
