Poetry Music Thoughts and Reflections

Nation — September 23, 2016

Nation

the armed guard is dressed

in 19th century floral

pink stilettos peeking

a shadow of layered petticoat

 

the folds separate the women

from the men and the young

paper coiled into tubes

two eye one at a time

 

a black helmet

upside down nests

an emoji crossed smile

umbered and chained

to feet of old plastic dolls

 

the ivory cat’s reflection rests

in painted boards

sky holes gaping

on serrated mesh

 

a flag wooden is tacked

to a white wall broken

of new foundations

on the third story

bought tolled and taxed

Museum —

Museum

in four limbs around an oval

man cerated

 

edges framed

and falling to cedar

 

expanding in triangular

their shadows white

 

footprints amidst

a maroon sea

 

the light of ceiling

soaked in a leaking flood

 

arial footed

lines pasted to the floor

 

a small diamond window hidden

in the belly of outside
