Go Back
the aerialists
Wednesday, September 3, 2003 - Shaun
and I saw you up there
woven on morning's silhouette loom
shimmering like a feverish angel
wearing a smoke ring halo
running like paint
a skeletal whisper of a girl,

I cut the tape again
threw out the grounded frames
and kept the space beneath me,

now I'm an aerialist
like you're an aerialist

we're cameos in the wind
we gather like vultures on the pendulum ball
and ride out
genocidal time,

like watery sailors of dirt streams
builders and smashers and rebuilders
of statues,
mouths full of dust
citizens of go
from pudgy babyhood
to hog-faced tortoise-necked manhood
and mosquito-faced womanhood
and beyond

and you
the goddess suspended
jumping moon boughs
caress air
between narrow knotted tethers
and devour laughing night.
