That one is Best Admired from a Distance: a poem

Best Admired from a DistanceBest Admired from a Distance image

That one is best admired from a distance.

Yes, she’s got those
Rumbling curves and flashy eyes.

Her smile will make you wilt
And stand taller, still.

I supposed if you must approach
Keep her well contained.

But you watch her close, now!

Go on – enjoy her, for a while.
She’ll stay put for a time.

But eventually, you’ll see
She’s scraping her chains against rock.

Gnashing and writhing: she’s bleeding for freedom.

You can try and keep her longer.
But I’m telling you, boy

In the end

She’ll rip you apart.

Yes, boy,
That one is best admired from a distance.
