Metamorphosis's Rodeo


A skeleton gets
Nervous
Reading pamphlets in
Disney World-
A make believe
Made of chicken wire
In hoops
Of the day-
Tourists drive down the road-
The most beautiful
Housewives
Who don't need any
Minds;
They enjoy the backyards
Where
Dolphins swim in the canals-
Obsessed with their swimming
Pools
Like diamonds drowning in cognac
And pilots who dance
Above their shoulders
In jubilees of
A metamorphosis's Rodeo
