grotesque

(parisian poem # 9)



Day after day

the wind teases

the pinions of wings

arched to bear you

over the horizon,

but you stay fastened

to the apex

of a temple

you will never enter.



Is your laugh

the rainwater

gushing out

your gaping maw

through old, broken teeth

bared to frighten,

yet have never

tasted flesh?



You are crouched,

muscles attuned

to spring

off a ledge

but

you cannot run,

leap, and

soar through spaces

reserved for

these fragile mortals

and morals

you are indentured to.



If you could move anywhere

but down through Time

where would you go?
