sleight of hand

Posted to Action Poetry




like an inept magician
whose mirrors accentuate
the lazy sleight of hand
we romanticize
restore the ruins
of glorious past
and yearn for pax
Lazarus raised
from entombed stench
our present
deodorizes
in euphemistic
optimism
a solitary banter
of voice vs.
the wind
