An excerpt, a poem in keeping with Esther bankruptcy five

A (thorny) burnet and caper,
Acanthus, field- and hawthorn,
A strolling resource of injury,
With thistle palms, and thorns
For hair upon his hands and legs
As if he have been a creature before
Men breathed, just like the many
Frozen in time in rock layers
That little chisels chip away at.
How abnormal his hands look,
Reaching for flesh to embrace,
How atypical the protrusions of round
And cylindrical heads upon his scalp,
That bloom into tender, silky white,
Yellow and pink plants that
Reflect goodness yet flip brown
And die. Adam stumbled on the likes of you
Outside Eden secure through cherubs
And the lethal flaming sword.
Haman the bush, the hedge, good
Food for camels, asses, and goats,
See, there you move, rolling along
The howling wilderness,
Rolling, gone.
