Bohemian Rhapsody

by G. Jack Urso


bo-he beat boys

babes and bums

pockets full of hopes

and opposable thumbs

“Girl before a Mirror” by Pablo Picasso (1932)

beatified beatitudes

looking for transcendental


settling for an existence

of acid, grass, and Quaaludes


like one of Picasso’s nudes

fractured like a broken mirror

facing the light
