Episcopalian Summer

Flags set in steel,
An obfuscation of deliberate intent;
Choking on the forms of language,
As Calliope refrains her laughter.

I guessed it was
Superfluous.

As shards in flesh became
The substance of my dream,
While white enamel paint dripped down
My dress.

And I collaged the silence

As trains passed by
Pedestrians swearing.
The curses of my
Erotic flesh perceived by
The nuances of shame.
