Gown - Poem by Emmanuel George Cefai
In the yellowish gown
Tarnished with so much wearing
The beast came tearing
Across the earth leopard-like
It roamed savage and proud:
And the moon panted out
In fear at the arrogance:
For arrogance on one side
Fear on the other: a saw?
Rifle-thin and cutting bayonet-like
The blinding light, the clap,
The rolling, sound that drawled,
The magnificent, unique thunder.
