She's Queen of the Night

As much moth wing as my teeth.

The narcissus disappeared underwater. Mary Todd Lincoln was named after a day lilly.

Slender, speckled day-lilly beds.

A moth flaps into my mouth.

The furiously flesh-elemental Laura Bush liked his blue shammy shirt, and he loved what she loved, and she drove her car over his ruby red day-lilly chest under the blood black moon on a clear night and she killed that guy who was her boyfriend.

Snug people with tattooed arms tug the tuft of hair where my neck meets my gorgeous tubular body.

In the post-Bush years I think we're going to face two possible scenarios re. Laura Bush: a) she really is a graduate of Stepford High School, thus explaining the fixed smile and vacuous stare; or b) she's a long-suffering, emotionally battered wife of one of the most evil men on the planet.

Killing her boyfriend, ironically, helped usher in our new "culture of life."

Sometimes the ends do justify the means.

That's a good point about Laura Bush's ends justifying her means. I think I've heard Ayman al Zawahiri say the same thing (but with a little more flourish, and with a bare, rocky mountainside in the background).
