Catacombs

entering into legend
like an origami bull
is much different
than entering into life

****

to leave a light behind
begin by sipping
little bits of moon brine

****

ham and oysters
and turpentine words
in a crayon miasma–
a matador makes a mistake

****

most house skeletons
become bone slides
in time

  1. A terrific poem. Don’t think I’ll ever be a legend but if I do get there I’ll look for the origami bull.

  2. Origami legend!

    Matador,
    take cape in hand,
    sweep the dirt.

    Bull horn,
    Moon horn.

    No jumping out of the way.
    Filled with turpentine
    and salt brine …
    We are the skeletons in our closets.
