An Ode to an Angel

(I found a very old Greek poem -around 800 BC old- by Daemon Hipocritus. If you don’t like it, blame the poet.)

Gimme a moment, angel
Gimme a minute or two,
That what is taken, angel
Will be back to you.

See, this is a crazy dream
We are on th’ demon’s side.
Let Gods live pious lives,
We are heathens, don’t abide.

A lull and the battle wounds –
Every pain is worthwhile,
Tube rails blow white skirts;
Dancing diva, Monroe style.

It’s not about love, angel
Inspire, inspire
Take sweet clay home, angel
Leave the fire, red-desire –

No! There’s no burn, angel
It’s a dream in purple, blue
In the morning when you’re back,
Everything is back to you.
