The mad dance of Joyce Carol Oates across the page

afric01_400_03You welcomed tigers -
Paraded them at the zoo.
My ill winter sun.

Fabric of bone. Skin -
I remember your lipstick.
Creamy petals. Mwah!

Trees bare skeletons -
Vultures or a lizard's flesh.
Lungs smiling with roots.

Married with children -
She is married to her guests.
Not the invalid.

She melts the blue sky -
Pure and healthy as water.
All suited to threads.

Oracle my wish -
The paper tiger empress.
What a strange anguish.

Wise shaman angel -
Let them call it angelic.
A ghost's potential.

It's just men talking -
What a waste of a human life.
Folded moons on edge.

All the ingredients -
Wrinkled origami hands.
Sit on your throne stalk.

In my mother's house -
Estranged beasts are fed. They glow.
She contemplates them.
