Each Denied Access To The Other

The Prince’s carcass
is straight shell,
the faint grey form
after a nuclear blast.
Some droll troll,
he has evacuated his role;
fickle as a cat
cowering in a
stalagmite dungeon,
or dashing away fiendishly
with a surreptitious grin.

Running through the forest
is Snow White with
her hands hacked off:
mystified, she calls
for her Prince.
The thought of marriage
has grazed his brain
like a bullet.
