At Your Service


would you have angels kneel
their feathers touch the ground
pinions form ramps so minuscule beings
might transcend glass metropolises
urban hovels and over-flowing gutters


to tromp about the heavens
like Icarus, but wingless
soon scorched just the same

how did the angel get his wings
did he demand his plumes
did he roll around in the muck
so sticks and dead leaves would mimic plumage
from afar, it’s hard to tell the difference
the faux, the knock-offs, from the genuine

but good luck flying that way
the only thing taking to air
will be the stench of decaying detritus

would you have angel’s kneel
their feathers touch the ground
because for you, they might

soon there will be no more angels aloft
only minuscule beings like you
treading upon their bended spines

how did the angel get his wings
by never asking anyone to kneel
so he could gain a better a view


the angel got his wings
with faith he could fly
