Varsha (Monsoon) 2021 Poems - Kate Meyer-Currey


No Angel
By Kate Meyer-Currey

Was it really
So far to fall
From lonely
By a chamber
Of cloud banks
By the heavenly host
Who cast her out
Their rigid wings
Chiselled profiles
Icing-sugar robes
Sneering down from
Wedding cake tiers
Of pristine perfection
At her vintage, torn lace
Rescued from a skip
Sequins askew
Pearls dropping
In a trail of tears
And limp confetti
As she twanged her harp
To a bass-beat
Broke her acrylics
God’s Big Brother House
Was voting her off.
She was about to
Drink the nightshade:
Lucifer took pity
When he saw her
Video diary
Gothgirl eyeliner
Ran, streaked
Her candy skull
It was love at first
Death stare
Like a true demon king
He roared off
Hell for leather
Took her home.
