The poetic city: A suite for Miss Helen “Helen in Ecstasy 7/27/12”


    Helen in Ecstasy     7/27/12


Helen in ecstasy

Earbuds in place

Singing out loud

Loud, out-of-tune, 

and flat.


I look around to check for reactions.


No one objects.

Are they being polite?

Maybe a little jealous?

Or simply befuddled


Seeing it matters not

I hide my embarrassment

Under angel wings

Newly sprouted

And continue the dance.
