Live Baroque

Minneapolis, July 1981

Live Baroque fountain gargoyles
Blue copper tints marbled archetypes
In tortured sunlight

Twin dragons fleece the winged and serpentine
Blood dyes the pool golden
Two svelte black bodies gleaming

Reaching torsos of inverted pyramids
Running yet tethered to the water
