sisyphus was no sissy
slipped through the hole in a barbed wire fence
trying to escape herstory but she keeps on
finding me i need a witness protection program
and a vacay
bearing witness is a slippery business slide straight
into the swamp or dangle from a rope lowered into
the belly of the beast watch out sissy!
known to talk to ghosts
heart a shriven totem
of brotherly love
just carry a garlic clove embrace him!
+he will be transformed into a smallish toad
ooops now quickly gobbled by our bulldog
soon to be dungbeetle dysentery
..these hard thoughts this envy this bitterness
make no lodgement in me .. i dash and sprinkle
myself with the bright waters of childhood .. but the
chained beast stamps and stamps on the shore..
(Virginia Woolf The Waves 1931)
