The Wizard of Paz

FullSizeRender (71)

poetry, for crying out loud!
bold teenage girl recites
of many losses, just “One Art”
While never losing sight.

Relentless, leading to a trail
a most intriguing tale,
flanked between the knight and king or                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       queen, proceeding without fail;

unrestricted moves in distances
bound to the diagonal.
She cannot jump
nor crowned be she, however understandable.

But language, literature, southward bound
unbridled love was found
which brings her to a foreign place
where “Exchanging Hats” astound.

A deeper side
a darker place
shadow box hung on wall
“is it a Joseph Cornell?”

Rio de Janerio brought
treasures from the swell
my god! an artist AND a poet
in the heart of death doth dwell.
