Mischief and irony among angels
Are as dogs and cats in human households
At the terminus of industrial,
Civilized, lazy nation. They're not rare.
They're not necessary. They're not useful
In most instances. (Who among you needs
The services of domesticated
Dog or cat to acquire your keep? Damn few.)
But they're nearly ubiquitous. Angels
Debate with ghosts and revenants, asking
Why they, the original chimeras,
Are only depicted as light or dark,
Never as eerily impossible.
Angels are eerily impossible.
