a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

The Cross

It's a circle
it's a square
i hide
i care not
what you see is not me but only what you wish to be
square
a circle

the girl is gone
mind is mine
try to take
body is mine
you cannot
hear her cries
a circle

Leave now
i have no name
she hides
no shame
she hides
in a square
a circle

toss your book
your cross
your sainted look
no reaching 
what is not here
your water brings no fear
a circle

We surely were on the same wavelength this week :-)

Perhaps she doesn't want people to know her or maybe she does. She wants them to see there is more to her than appears. I love poems that spin my mind in different directions.

I love the rhythm and repetition in this--it reminds me of repeated images in twin mirrors.

Squaring the circle ... Achieving something which by rights should be mathematically impossible ( vy the laws of logic), is she an Angel ?

Forest Tinker said...

Truly mysterious. Great rhythm. Pity about the captcha

Sandy said...

The mystery about her unleashed! Does she dare? Do we! I saw this post earlier but quickly realized I can't read this, I haven't written mine yet! Yikes. I know this is gonna be a fun bunch of Magpies this week.
