Stage Looks its Age

heaven’s lobby blushes and
bats a flirty lash top
a vaudeville
stage

half its
age,

and hell’s skybox pans o’er
the mass grave of angels
still tilling for slim’s
wage
,

man lifts up his light
only to gobble the
dark beneath

then runs, shorts full o’ fear
when all he finds is
shadow lickin’
its teeth.
