Maquette Study
By Old Stile Press

(Regarding the play by Peter Shaffer)

tangled irrational
worship of godhead
a madness of manes
leaps from Homeric
dreams of pathology

hoofbeats of midnight
sleek flanks handsome
naked and glistening
gallop the portentous
path of the moon

immature ill-informed
boy-king passions
libido and liturgy
twisted together reins
fouled by psychosis

played out beneath
twelve equine
innocent eyes
misperceived in
dark mirrors of guilt

baleful judgment
deserving the strike
of a spike as the blind
violent price for their
view of the soul
