The Oscars, by Melissa Chaconas

Robes, masks, carpets, sculptures
Statues, like s Shakespearian
Amorous play- party – the great
Barrier is lifted- all purple
Orange coral bones drift into the
up…
the accomplished shine in light
their inner world below-is tall &
become s their now
wobbly legs

treacherous
viperfish
numberless
ones cling to
burning throats

gangway bridges
wide-snap
the drowned

into morning fields-where hurting unsleeping makes crooked eyes
