Lovely Thing
by David Bowles

Lovely thing that dances at the edge,
Heedless of the masses' cries:
Straddle the rift betwixt left and right—
Moderate, rational, sane.

Wander the valley of endless now
Shadowed by looming future and past;
Skirt the boundaries of militant gender—
Search for androgynous gray.
