Week 33- Heather Ouellette-Cygan

Posted: November 16, 2011 in Heather Ouellette-Cygan, Uncategorized, Week 33

After the Union

Musings on Julian Beck’s “Romeo and Juliet”

 

Death lurks from behind

The wall of paint. The young

Lovers never knew that first

 

Night they met that he’d be

There always – waiting

For their coming soon.

 

His green hair plastered

Down, he plans for your

Demise over a jar of

 

Mayonnaise. Black spots-

Or is it ink – seal the deal.

A young girl who’ll

 

Stab herself in the breast

Rather than live another

Crypt kept moment without.

 

Gosh, she barely breathed

Three minutes betwixt his

Drink and her awakening and

 

The dagger in the chest

is always a promise

in the mist of the cave.
