Mel Brooks
The Grasshopper

Bloodless bones sparkle,
potentially poised and blackened.
A projection 
streaking to sacred orisons
from the middle to the trailing purpose,
spitting collected tension
on wound pinion legs.
A pounce in parallax profile,
scrolling sideways 
through perspective,
to elope from the paper,
engaged on the trajectory,
to a marriage with the eye.
