Despairing Angels « Poem by Richard Falk

Despairing Angels

Carnalized in our time

Wingless

floating floating

Serenading cities aflame

far below

Lyrics of death descending

Shrill with despair

Not not

the sweet Tiepolo angels

Now now

a lost imagining:

the sweetest among angels

are being tutored to die

While wingless beings

graceless and grotesque float

above our menaced planet

Despairing Angels «.
