Poem – Tablature

Color - New

Latin lachrymae

dactylic entablature

hearty Icarus


Daddy did him in

Daedalus damn near killed him

dear demented boys


Such unwieldy toys

Sweet young girls smile through it all

Wizened women weep


and such are the tears

such utter and total pain

sustains aged demons


Sing until you’re hoarse

Cling cleave colonic embers
