epitaph of the elusive

Broke the spell
With the unwrapping of small square
Slippery plastic:
A reminder of freedom

Liberation from the wretched retching
A swift movement towards closed

After which, the only thing oppressive:
The sweat
on the back
of the neck


The nearness of a traveled, intimate face

Unraveled the rabble
Of mock-minded messengers
Who had set up their bivouac
in the back
of the neck

Stared dauntless and excited
At the withstanding wisps of loyalty
As they fell in sparkling twists
from the back
of the neck
