Sugar

silver colossus that, I swear,

symbolizes nothing. It steps

on a lego that was cruft

in the shag.

 

It doesn’t feel it.

 

Because this specific Gordian not, or wasn’t,

travels, sinews

nerve from floor to foot

and up the leg.

should he be surprised

if he wakes up as less?

Maybe silver is hard and gold

soft

And his blind ventricles will entangle

And rend.

his skull will

fill

slowly with pudding

and when he reaches down

to peel lego from fallen arch

he’ll miss.
