“Your One Last Chance to be Beautiful”

23 Apr

“Your One Last Chance to be Beautiful”

Beautiful racket, freeze us in our dread

and beautiful rockets, close our eyes

and beautiful born to be beautiful rain

the last chance hours have cost us again

and all of our mimicry falls in this purse

and all evolves no matter the curse

our chemical wedding

and the fluttering of frogs

and forgive us those beautiful trees

who give us our bread

furthering events to stand alone

the scalding of the troll’s mother

who wants to bake us for breakfast

spread like rose bruises

across the gulch

closes the horizon

with the blind glove,

the fisheries’ transparent nets

laid bare on a floor of scary faces

dreaming of a naked hill, spread-eagled

to awake in a cornfield

barren and gagged

and all throats multiplying

for each blessed tear of nourishment

fever in the range

the imprints of a body falling

through nets and stars

and changeling: you hatched a demon.
