My Elvis Fears


What frightens me
about this well-done
and almost perfect
rendering of
the body Elvis
on stage
is that
in real life
his left heel
was not flat on
the floor
it was lifted up
while his toes
gripped the floor
as he slanted forward
toward the audience
and I remember nada
that was taught to me
at my College Prep
High School
this is what
frightens me
about me
and Elvis

  1. Elvis’ charisma was so overwhelming, it cut right through our school uniforms into previously unheard of places (to us). Dare I say, like a dagger? The nuns, though, were all into Liberace.
