Cowlicked upon the Stage

COWLICKED UPON THE STAGE

02 FEBRUARY 2020

resplendent in variorum
cowlicked upon the stage
travels one carload after
another speeding by at night
bows and claps completed
finished for the week
leaving no trail of outrage
or dissent, no color, height,
odor of skin
flash of sword
to thrill us another day or two
no stamp of disapproval
misspoken lines
nor bad reviews
can precede them
in their place
wherever it is they go
