Quixote By Cloudlight Pitied Only

to Miguel Cervantes, forever

crying out on the slow blade's curve
could no one hear him but the jeweled clouds?
the lowland sorrows gathered here

in after years, and bowing down to the ground.
imperial scorn and local gossip did not die here

he was hoisted on the stars; it must have been.
and are the Giants vanquished yet?
nursery rhymed the children, bringing flowers

to the gaunt one, laid to rest
in an evil hour
