and on and on to another world

reach in
reveal
a wondered guise
that is poor and wise
that we deputise

this avatar
abates to nought
this abattoir
is tending taut
to other masquerading fools
wearing troubled, haunted jewels

I am a somebody else now
and these catastrophes
are yours and mine
we dance to different music
when the lights come up
when the lights go down

One thought on “and on and on to another world
