A Last Laugh?…

*

The New European,

in need of a costume

rifles through the storehouse of history

but finds none that quite fit…

*

We may consider the twenty-first century (common age)

with regard to these wayward

predilections of style…

*

In vain, we parade ourselves as Romantic,

or Baroque, or…

But, alas, nothing now suits us.

*

The spirit, being spirit,

spies an advantage in this,

our despair.

*

We are a fledgling age of Carnival,

in our ill-fitting garb

we make ready to take to the World Stage…

*

As Buffoons of God!
