Celestials


Philosophers posing as poets
prescribe, invite through
what they describe

Poets doing their work
won’t solicit
but elicit the fire and fight

The thin philosophes
abandon you outside
as much to say Imagine dat

You sit there saying
do your own job
I did not come here to apply

Your skeletons rattle
your bones shatter
your groan is a misshapen lie

What I want to know is
what matters
when there’s an absence of sky
