Angel

https://wolfgarwords.com/

 

Angels are best cast out

before that they are merely slaves

God in his fury frees them

and regrets it for the rest of days

 

I met one in Le Sacré-Cœur

she flew out of a frame

burned upon re-entry

she took refuge by the Seine

 

We ended up in Le Pigalle

in a club called Crazy Horse

she slid the pole so heavenly

bound straight for hell of course

 

The best is often thrown away

the best is often waste

my eyes are cast to hell I’d say

for there my senses taste

 

the things that God forbids us

the things he keeps for self

but I am not for keeping

his teachings on the shelf

 

I took her down to Sainte-Chapelle

where we spied her in the glass

she folds her face to my lapel

now the Angel’s mine at last

Thanks Po and Rachel,

Being an atheist some might find this strange, I like the idea of fallen angels as it suggests a rebel strain and a sense of liberty.

The unwritten reference I make in the audio is obviously an error, it is largely unread not unwritten.

I love the link Rachel, the piece was not written with any referencing to it but it seems to fit perfectly.

I did meet an angel at Sacre Coeur, and enjoyed an unearthly experience.

Cheers,

David.

Perversely and refreshingly original in many ways, and testament to a free thinker, a rarity. Humour is streaked through, and we are hypocritical if we find no attraction in the poem. Masterful work.

I loved hearing this...

Its hard to find anything in a library that's thirteen miles long!

I would enjoy talking about the reality of this.

I would need an extension to my life to just scratch the surface of the my last 3 score years and three

Bloody masterful.

I caught a glimpse of the devil’s lies
Hid behind those angelic eyes

…"she slid the pole so heavenly"
That's it mate, the slippery slope right there ;)
