Listen, Pharaoh

from by From a Fountain



hung by his ears
he hangs the way he’s posed
legs in the air

over sharpened rocks
yes, I know he ails

holdin’ on ‘til the rains come down

listen, pharaoh, this I know:
hawks and sparrows, they don’t grow

down toward the rocks
his body flails and drops
they fade away
them rocks is made of hay
man hits the rocks

if he’d had a wing,
he’d-a missed this thought

don’t kill yourself
don’t fly away
