An excerpt




Once a Military Wonderland


Jezreel, desolate-

Layered in earth and


Hid Naboth’s blood,

Fed dogs

Jezebel’s torso,

Gave Elijah lungs

To condemn,

Boasted Ahab’s 70


In two piles by the city



Jezreel, unearthed by spade,

Of the Iron Age,

Dry moat

And great walls,


Jezreel gone

Like Ozymandias,

Solomon too.
