The Ancient Quadrilateral – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Kite – RDP Saturday





The Ancient Quadrilateral

He stood on the rise
loosened his tie and just ran
remembering those days when
his mother and father
lived an angry indifference
that had drawn him here,
to the four winds
who’d encouraged him,
conversing about the ancient quadrilateral
of brown paper and string
that would take him to lost realms
of heart and mind,
he flew here regularly
his laughter lighting the darkness
of everyone near.

ยฉPaul Vincent Cannon
