For How Long Still, Elaine

 

“The need of art for an objective correlative is perennial.”

— Wayne Shumaker, Literature and the Irrational

for how long still, Elaine
will I, your loyal prey,

seek comfort

in true time
& the smell of fresh, fragrant graves?

the twilight has died

like your lush, phosphene

after-image – – –

trying to recall & no words left:

are you my victimizer

or the goat being scaped?
