the ladder

Intolerable!

he screams from the stage

colored light and winter’s chill

a thousand mouths breathing out a cover

for those in thrall to make-believe

and the ancient rites of nonsense

wrapped loosely in what you’re always hearing

from the flat ghosts

illuminating the darkness

like Jack said he saw

in quiet neighborhoods

before most of you were born

to the ladder and the chair
