The Fig Leaf Removed

There I am, laid bare on a slab of steel undone by my Achilles' heel, A Mayan priest's obsidian blade, or a sultry siren's silent serenade There I am, placenta draped and screaming Awoken from my embryonic dreaming Beckoned forth to join the woeful parade And make a cameo for a few accolades There I am, full of zeal and glee Despite all my idiosyncrasies Overly amorous and under prepared But going ahead unimpaired There I am, washed of my daily grime resetting all the usual paradigms Readying myself for the Sisyphean chore of another day I can not ignore
