Quel Saige


Letter from a Phantom Poem by Quel Saige


There is safety in numbers—
Will all the members
Of the Assembly Please stand?

(marrowless creatures all
and culpabler than everest tall
falsehoods and solutions cut the strand)

Forbidden and forced to frequent fringe Zones
Where we roam ensemble, alone
(while those who think they're right inhabit Land) —
