HOW TO UNPACK A BOMB VEST

Start with the vest itself, each pocket stuffed with scriptures
and explosives, hatred and nails, belief and batteries. No. Start
with prayer on Friday, or Saturday, or Sunday. No. Search
online for where the materials and the rhetoric were bought.

“This poem is in response to Chris Cornell’s suicide this week.”

Steve Henn

SUICIDE NOTE

Hey Zeb,
Remember when you dubbed Soundgarden
for me in high school and I said it sounded like
a symphony of chainsaws? Chris Cornell died
today. God Bless that man and his Gift
