Poetry #353
(published October 25, 2007)
At the Henry Darger Exhibit
by Jonathan Hayes
Across the street from Lincoln Center
in the American Folk Art Museum

we gaze at his gigantic paper scrolls
of little butterfly girls with penises

— battalions of these awesome creatures.
Colorfully mixing violence and sex,
and never showing his work to anyone.

Some things we keep to ourselves.

Editor's Note: On Henry Darger
