Eddie Roa

Jaded

Centuries of delight reprised
Weaving thru the statuary
Peeing Eros, spouting lion
Cold nubile maidens and
Olympians with lecher eyes

Doorway upon doorway
Leading to a gallery then another
Daylight to twilight
Midnight to dawn
Oh what irksome ennui!

You awe at wonders only once
Not felt if all over again
First gladiator kill gives the most thrill
The first kiss divine, then just lust
A debut is grand, what’s next a parody

A continuum of sameness
A season of repeats
A looped tape of events
An echo playing pong
God stammering

    you can even bring a chuckle from greek mythology: 'Peeing Eros' gives the reader quite an image...lc
