Pieta

She is a Gazelle
Arabica[2], graceful,

 
taught and furtive –
leaping from edge

 
to edge of the blue
fata morgana

 

A dancing chimera[3]

leaping from shadow
 
to shadow along

the penumbra

 

of a desperate thirst.

The silvered scales

 

of the siren song

swell her crystalline

 

tongue. Sharp words cut her

mouth , mirrored tongue

 

cracks into a thirteen[4]

pieces at my feet

 

like the fateful mirror

                 
                  of Perseus’ shield.

 


[1] Pieta is slang for Crystal Meth.

[2] An elusive gazelle that was apparently hunted to extinction

[3] Gazella arabica was based on a chimera and never existed as a distinct species in nature

[4] The number 13 brings the test, the suffering and the death. It symbolizes the death to the matter .
