You Are Not Deposed

by David Andrés Alíx

It is reasonable
To suppose
You have been
Deposed
From your throne
I did compose
During your
Prolonged departure

The provisional queen
Would not sit
Neither to rule
Nor for a photo-op
Pose
Unable to coax
Your subject’s
Rapture

So this throne
Remains alone
Until the rightful
Queen recovers
From the rupture
Waiting to attain to
Your lofty and pristine
Unmatched stature
