For Art + Literature Aficionados Only: A Book Review

________________________________________________________________________________________________

Like the goriest of Goya
or a low rent Guernica,
where no horses are killed,
only humans.

Gulaged brothers fall
for a Jewish Goddess
but the camp guardians
treat her ungodly.

All in a book by a Brit,
surnamed famous,
I.e., Amis.

It is a novel
about thousands encamped
in an Arctic hovel.

Violence is banal happenstance
but love springs eternal
and death is dirty
and diurnal.

One can survive
but not the others
yet Russia is
the mother of mothers

Whose children are
naturally brawlin'
under the post-war
reign of Stalin.

Martin Amis 
House of Meetings

A QUOTE FROM 
p.92 OF THIS EDITION:

If God really cared about us,
he would never have given us
religion.
