Note Eight to Vladimir Putin: The Old Woman on Day Eighty-Four of the Russia-Ukraine War

That old woman
lived through the Holodomor
          the second of the World Wars
She ate weeds and chewed leather.
Now your cock fires missiles at her porous bones
and you suck on their marrow
like a crazed babe at the breast.

Enough already.
Come inside.
