Acquiescence



Acquiescence

Bring me vellum and Charcoal
Then lay awhile in tepid light
Humming and winking
Fresh and naked as a newborn fold

There used to be music
Fall and winter spring and summer
Comes now the doors rusty report
With cheeky landlords process server

Bring me parchment and indigo ink
Then clear the table, strewn in waste
No checks will there be drawn
On this counter of buckets singing with rain

There used to be words
Cherished and clever
Before this rasping hollow
Conch shell echo of air waves absurd

Bring me wine and honey pears
But stay a while
Love making on slightly clean sheets
Knowing the master has left in despair

Hold long the dog-eared page
The remnant pencil with bitten point
Passages of heroism that no longer cleanse
You and I in this failing light

Bring me the linen and fine silk thread
Await to step in the crimson gown
Tunes on the radio acclaim your face
Hand in hand with the dystopian dead

The Repurposed Male
