2926


























2926
With thunderbolts
Of peanuts am I
From four-storeyed Olympus
Zeus to the mortal squirrels
With seamless eyes.
In wonder they stand upon the sound
Of a certain window opening.

My august ancestral strands will all to one twine,
To one twine all,
It is a matter
Of time.
My grandfather strolled
In Prague along and puffed at his cigar.
The sky was gray but for an intermittent column of light
And the boulevards met this horizon
And that, at this or another angle,
With a cathedral coherence
Of single intent.
He was content
And took note of nothing beyond this his contentment.
This is who I was before I was born, looking
Idly at the sky.

The city church
Fronts appointed thrift;
The spiritual man
Hinged slant to the stone presence
Sits astep,
Guised, grimed, he smokes
Hand rolled; Landscape:
A psalm toned distant organ
Is the blue themed addition
To his vesper tot
In pocket.

Along
the
sudden 
edge
Of
somethi
ng
about
to happen
Lies the
Cat
asleep
in the sun,
And the 
geese
Flying in
a vee.

To be saved by an inadvertancy
Is as common as the twilight
Random officer speaking
To you.
In what mandatory credential
Continues the sun's sweet dawn?
