Because water and sewer mains are destined
In corruption to flow together
Toward death's vast leavening.
In the land of blood and honey, Balkan
Albania, a beautiful Slovenian
(Almost Austrian!) and a handsome
Life-hungry American (rich!),
Came to suffer a relatively aggressive
Yet adequately mild dysentery (giardia,

Beaver fever), kaleidoscopic
Vomiting from both over-extended
And tender volcanoes, orifices
That were, so they are obliged
To try every vile site leftover from
The Ottoman Empire, Greek, Italian,
Enver Hoxha, dim lit asphyxiating filth-
Hole for gore.
