Professor Cedric Serpes

I lick the flame of youth

But feel no burn nor blister.

Words revoke their baggage

And I hammer at nothing.

My skin leaks its essence

And my eyes have lost their macula.

Outside laughter breaks loose.

And wrinkles into a memory.

There is no beginning. No end.

Just the middle, beyond which

Is tautology nailed to a cross.

And a haunting animal cry with broken legs

And saliva mixed with earth.
