Dancing for the Muse Final

art photograph by Rod C. Stryker

she waltzes through

a change-up phrase,

deep-seated metaphor,

some cliche’d sentiment,

each night

she sings hieroglyphics

born of indigestion

and anxiety

until slumber’s lake

is still, calm,

at first light,

she courts

as lover, enemy,

bares sinner and savior

w/both shoulders,

a sacrifice to memory,

every poem

she bleeds

I gain..   me


Rod C. Stryker

The poem and the art photograph were published in my book, Lucid Affairs. Hope you like it.
