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
the accomplished shine in light
their inner world below-is tall &
become s their now
wobbly legs

ones cling to
burning throats

gangway bridges
the drowned

into morning fields-where hurting unsleeping makes crooked eyes
