Two Poems by Pete Lee: I am the two Charlton Hestons and Armageddon Pants
by Pete Lee
I am the two Charlton Hestons

During the week I work
in the local unemployment office
and Monday thru Friday it's mob scenes
right out of Soylent Green

But on Saturday and Sunday
I explore the ghost town desert
saguaro stand there like mannequins
on the old Main Street
temptresses to the Omega Man

Armageddon Pants

I erupt
you quake
we're on fire
there's a flood
of killer bees and fallen
soldiers of Christ and Antichrist
in the hurricane of our twisted love:
either we were starved or it's a disease
