Revolution by Irene O’Garden

13 Jun 2017, Posted by Editor in Poetry


We learn revolution

as a one-time trauma,

with drum, with anthem,

shouts and shocks

and falling guillotine,

yet, too, the clock revolves.

The year revolves.

The natural order

revolves, the power

of beauty revolves away

the power of parents

revolves away the power

of childhood revolves away


the mask

slips on

slips off
