once upon a time

there was a girl and a boy
living with archaic strife
they played the game
and thought true love came
in a box entitled Life

he knew she could fly
like Icarus too high
he watched as she dropped
the grounding rod from the sky

now time won't even tell
what is hidden
what comes unbidden
from a dark deep wide kell

only against the wind she leans
for who knows what it means
to go on in that abstract way
while never was fades away
and every hope and all her schemes
dance with shadows behind opaque screens
