Ganesh or dumbo, Poetry by Damian Corcoran

 Genre: Memory, Spiritual

Ganesh or Dumbo

What you don’t know
doesn’t hurt you
Ganesh or dumbo?

Unsaids like viruses spread
Insinuating into the tendons
To bring us down
Ganesh or dumbo

Cute and childlike
Meek and mild
Drinking milk

Ganesh or dumbo?

A drop left Suspended
A Silent whiteness
A witless witness
Ganesh or dumbo

Globule stretching downwards
Fearful flight
Forestalled Swoosh

Ganesh or dumbo

plop it drops
From chin to bowl
Innocence lost In an

instant of Ignorance

Or choice of ignorance
What Remains is
By default
Ganesh or dumbo

Big words like wisdom
And forgiveness
Cut deep in stone
Are no competition
For dark vengeance
And memories unforgetting

Ganesh or dumbo
