Fantasia

for the most
part, she is
unaware
unwitting
unconscious

for the most
part, she is
purposefully blind
intentionally ignorant
deliberately dead

to his Life
to his World
to WhoHeIs

for the most
part

then there are
days
hours   
    times
when there is
nothing  
but

those are the
times
when crape-eyed
models
with copper-cued
skin
and hair so black it must
once
have been blue,

dissolve like dreams
passive and powerless
'gainst the tow-headed
day,
'gainst the righteous
light 

that freezes
Hope
and cauterizes
Love

at the behest of
Duty.
