  • The Cape of the Mime

    Unruly upheaval
    Chased old gods away
    Shiny new ones
    Arrived later that day

    If you hope to survive
    The aborning inquisition
    Better find a favored phrase
    To justify your condition
    When called before
    The masters of suspicion
    For insufficient memory,
    Faulty intuition,
    And insidious ideas
    Too horrible to mention

    Unquestionable answers
    To the equivocal question
    About an omnipresent mood
    Of agitated depression
    Received great praise
    From the whole profession.
    Inspiration, catharsis,
    The joy of self-expression,
    Obscured in longueurs
    On sex and aggression

    Navigate those particulars,
    Abide undeterred
    By the desperate threat
    Of a spurious word
    To forge artificial obstacles
    Urgent and absurd
    And even more still
    When lines are blurred
    Between a shove in a crowd
    And a nudge in a herd

    Incompletely complicated
    And completely mundane
    Somehow still not
    Completely insane
