Museless



The sudden urge scuttled off like
an injured marsupial faun.
That deep yearning that turned words
like tricks on redlight street corners.

The holes of the flute have been blocked off
by marsupial faun hair and convention´s ambrosia.

Yes that sticky substance that glues
the masses together with the stench of
modern quack closure.

Hemingway conquered half the world
with a muse like Gellhorn.
Near my fountain of grace
My welcome has been worn.
