Time-Line of an Imortal Queen

Poetry By: donkylemore
Classics




time unheeded ; conquered by a celebrity
She plunders , triumphs ,
witticisms epithets drop from her dulcet lips
till a bird soars above her and awaits ..
as her mind decays
and perfidious age is on the prowl
relentlessly.. awaits

What burning affairs rage within
The echoing vaults of her awakened mind
What troubled cloud does pass across her willowing thoughts
And trace their tear upon her golden countenance ?
Which cloudless sky will bestow its warmth upon her alabaster brow
Which bird shall sing the merriness of her mornings delight ?

Which strapless gown will she wear to town today
A little black number perhaps by Gucci
White gloved like Audrey Hepburn ?

Cast back the wardrobe ; let me see and thing and try and think ..of what I wore last night and
Of that unflattering mirror in the restaurant ;
And the too- concealing stool in the nightclub
Oh get a life !!

Her gilded word comes from her
Purple lips as purple prose
And is worshiped by her golden circle ;
At her alter when she takes audience
And with whom she auditions and then audits
Their daily invective
With daylong gossip ; peppered with salacious scandal
Sliced with slander and
Strained in a simmering colander.

Who is sleeping with whom now
And guess who had a threesome
In the golf club , without the balls
Oh ! Get a life …..

Snort a line.. Chase the Dragon..
Followed with a desert
Of Lebanese gold ..
And Dom Perignion till dawn..
And a little Nembutal to drift in numbed congress with Morpheus in dreamless sleep..

Get a Life ..!!
So many losers out there ..


Where have gone the puzzles turned to torment and confusion
In the sunken trenches of her war torn mind ?
Which storm has spent its fury ;
And flung itself among her forests and befelled her ancient swaying Oaks and Sycamores ?
What cart has carried her unawoken from the brooding heavens ;
Before the leaves rose up in whirlwinds and flew in torrents
And fell upon her avenues ,
And all along the length of her meandering path ?

What albatross follows her all her days
and watches her by moonlight
And by faded light of day ?



Till the winds will cease
And the colander grow cold
And the alabaster brow
Grow untroubled ,
Yellowed ,waxen on crisp starched linen sheet.
