Carmen Taggart- A Poem

Chubby Little Angel

further along the path
envelopes without a notice
ensues as we
slip deeper into denial
snooping friends
at the pain they discover
chubby little angel
shoots his arrows
no consideration for where they may land
blankets of confusion
sizzling thoughts of eros
coming up unbidden in the middle of the day
swear to keep the thoughts at bay
rolling around in the hay
year after year
something must be done
gin joints
bouquets of arrows
the meat marketers send him out amongst the masses
the masses
mile upon mile lined up
underneath the sky looking for a
shooting star
to tell them that they are not alone in a
vast universe
where who owns your heart
is what matters to most
