By Dan Lukiv
An excerpt, a poem according to Esther bankruptcy five
A (thorny) burnet and caper,
Acanthus, field- and hawthorn,
A strolling resource of injury,
With thistle fingers, 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 ordinary the protrusions of round
And cylindrical heads upon his scalp,
That bloom into delicate, silky white,
Yellow and crimson flora that
Reflect goodness yet flip brown
And die. Adam discovered the likes of you
Outside Eden secure by way 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,
