Divine view

Emperor’s New Clothes in Odense. Wikimedia.


His transparent ego    
climbing up & out
of clothes.

Electric & passionate-
for colleagues,
unrestrained savage -
for enlightened.

-         He’s beautiful, -
the artist whispered.

  1. So well done -- I love it!!!! Great how everyone sees him differently --- there IS perhaps something beautiful in him -- the beauty of a wolf sinking its teeth into its prey! The final lines really make the reader pause and think ---

    Nicely done!

  2. Well done. Reminded me of a Bruce Dawe poem about a prominent man who in death looked better than he ever did in real life, thanks to the skill of the undertaker.

  4. Gosh, I like your poem, but even more the little statues and the beautiful capture of them. I just happened to shoot some photos of four ceramic clowns I have.... I like capturing things like that! It's like you bring them to life. Very cool.
