poem || Sheila E. Murphy

One Big Happy

Chivalry portends chivaree,
entonces, la libertad, as we have
known it [equals
among equals] fallen prey to

“Let us”
ponder yonder
the big blue bodice

of humidity, whose dignity
mirrors docents of propinquity,
who hold up images
of prior thought,

and what was thought,
some Carolinian defection
to the mood ring
of ulterior motives in the anterior?
