By Dan Lukiv
An excerpt, a poem in accordance with Esther bankruptcy five
A (thorny) burnet and caper,
Acanthus, field- and hawthorn,
A strolling resource of injury,
With thistle palms, and thorns
For hair upon his fingers and legs
As if he have been a creature before
Men breathed, just like the many
Frozen in time in rock layers
That little chisels chip away at.
How abnormal his arms look,
Reaching for flesh to embrace,
How unusual the protrusions of round
And cylindrical heads upon his scalp,
That bloom into smooth, silky white,
Yellow and crimson plant life that
Reflect goodness yet flip brown
And die. Adam chanced on the likes of you
Outside Eden safe by means of cherubs
And the lethal flaming sword.
Haman the bush, the hedge, good
Food for camels, asses, and goats,
See, there you cross, rolling along
The howling wilderness,
