Tangled up in you

in your stampeding
horses unimpeded.

Tangos danced
on the glistening brilliance
of lofted boards,

by the polished glow
oaken corridors,
scholars and sycophants
fall fawning at your feet

stand triumphant.
flex those puckered lips,
you monolith that wears
so well a dictator’s smirk.

your frowns and smiles
weave an eloquent disguise.
each a nod, a dalliance or less.

huff comes
and puff reveals
and ugly dispositions.

explodes, shattered light
and darkens seen.

Fragility demolished
in a glow,
this meteoric brilliance
