Flight of Europa

Paul Manship, 1927, gilded bronze

You think you're grown up enough but who
would be fooled by that indecent tail but a victim;
who by that comic blimp bull body but one
with everything to lose? Oh, Europa,
don't smile. Everything you know
is about to die. The joke told here
isn't funny, and we laugh
because the violation's already begun
and we have no voice to resist.
