“Angel Wings”~by Michael Graves



“Angel Wings”

Angels don’t have wings.

Wings are a marketing device
that makes them easier to sell.
It also makes it much easier
to avoid the paparazzi if people think
you’re supposed to have wings.

Wings stick out in a crowd.
A stylish affectation.
Angels don’t need

Do you actually think
that a being like that
would need wings?

I mean

They would only get in the way
in elevators;
in small, fast cars.
They would be a nuisance
in a movie theater.
You’d have to keep them cleaned…

Do you know how involved it is
keeping wings clean?
Birds do it, bees do it
They’ve got nothing better to do.
Preening, preening, preening…

Humans need wings.

It’s a good thing that most angels
have a sense of humor.

If you’re going to look for angels, watch
for the radiance
not wings.
