Barbed Prophecy

 

By Julie Flanders

 

All the woe-begotten, joy-besotted

Debutantes

Wait for him

And what he wants

When he wants it

 

She is not about to find him

In the archives

Where the history of the world

Hides behind him

And the women who could never

Possess or unwind him

Make a play to be what defined him

They are not of consequence

 

All the faith-forsaken, overtaken

Hypocrites

Wait for him

Where the future sits

In its bits and pieces

 

She is keen to see what time

Releases

From the dungeons

Where the history of a man

Comes and bludgeons

Him

And the visions that could never

Cast him asunder

Make a play to be what comes under—

Stood

The way she wishes it would

 

The way it never could

Once

It had been done
