Poem / Jack Micheline

Genius is a ragged lion
   holding sunlight in his hands
Friend of outlaw, rare grotesque
   Alone he flies with eyes of eagles
Lunatic
   Ape
      Angel
         Demon
            Fiend,
Torn and spit upon by cowards
   he walks with angels and despair
Genius, poet, ragged lion
   holding sunlight in his hands.
