Rote, on Schedule

Rote, on Schedule


Olympus is dry
beaten, defeated
by thousands of plebeian cruise ship sneakers
overwide, overlarge
overeaten from endless
complimentary buffets

the poets are gone
taken a wage
chained themselves to hours
linked to step, like the masses

the edges of their prose smoothed by rain and recession

while the muses weep
not from pain
but boredom.
