"Alterations"

Alterations


I want a hero of a certain type,
            a muse who gabs for newer garb
custom-made for archetype
            of shape shifter, a tarot card

hermit who emerges without hype
            or hardened heart,
an orphan of the night tilting light
           by walking backward,

            Magritte’s chapeau to alight
from gallery to weary guard,
            surreal to set things right,
a little prince to free the sword 

            as words from stone, to see    
the stone as notes for poesy.
