Antonomasia

by Jen Karetnick

— After The Concert in the Egg by Hieronymus Bosch (a disputed attribution)

Never mind the snake
hanging like a stale piece

of licorice over a pinky of branch;
he’s not so seductive after all.

And though trees root here, and myths
teem like gods, this pessimistic

impasto is hardly a garden.
Never mind the choir of goliards
