The Mirages Of Terrapin - Poem by Robert Rorabeck

Artform of plumped legs:
Of you climbing up to her,
Satisfied with death’s gifts: and you
Have a sword
And her phone number.
Elephants on stilts rise from the ocean
And kiss the mirages of terrapin
Cloistured in the architectures
That don’t even appear to be anymore.
