The Next Leg

A fresh new poem by Tim Suermondt

The Next Leg

Tim Suermondt


To my surprise the greatness of mankind
triumphed with no irony attached.
What the next leg will be I have no clue
but I see a little girl dressed as an angel,
her winged arms stretched out
for the entire play and a boy, in a navy
blue suit, banging a drum, relishing
the noise. Perhaps everything does come
around again, the sun, moon and earth,
those slivers of silver and gold, of mercy.
