a hardly morbid paper mache crane full
of jolly rancher hard candies.
blindfolded children wildly
swinging bats on the backporch.
the wise sit back and drink
diet shasta grapefruit soda.
few understood the sky to be sheathed
in paper constantly burning.
such an exquisite sacrifice...
inside in the livingroom an old victorian
couch smells of mouthballs and
inanimately standing there in its
four legged stance.
objects like this caused many to sin in
the wildernesses of sinai.
some gathered perspective
others did not.
burst goes the belly of a
brightly colored papyrus crane.
busy goes the little fingers picking
up the candies tumbling out.
