Adding class to the joint...

...with poetry.

Googling "drunken severed head", I found this poem by one Gershon Hepner:

"severed head"

Reeling through the claustrophic clouds,
acting like a woman who is drunk,
the moon provides a moonlit shrine with shrouds
that wrap the head that's severed from the trunk.

Herod, once Salome has revealed
her nakedness, removing seven veils,
capitulates upon a fertile field
of fantasizing phallocentric males.

Mr. Hepner has the poem and his accompanying commentary here:

And his biography can be found here:
