SUCH LORDLY EXCESS

SUCH LORDLY EXCESS

The engineer stood beneath Houziyan Dam
and he believed for a breadth of time that
this was the marriage announced.
After all he measured his life in thuds,
rocks tumbling through the gaps between
his fingers and the other sinews.
Each impact was joules and then breakfast;
the river gods served scrambled eggs and rice;
never enough cracked black pepper.
Then the divorce, anticipated, shredded
concrete walls like milk and fog for fish
into black bean paste with sugar.
When she looked upon his works she said
I would have kissed you but for this,
such lordly excess in the dark.

    You know my manifold faults.
    They manticore: they flagellate
    in the ballroom on 21st and K.
    Those chandeliers speak episodes
    of Star Trek Deep Space Nine
    barely remembered in the lens
    and chiffon of that long-ago age.
    They shift, as well, as you,
    mightily singe through the CRT
    and how did you prefer the coffee
    made by goldsmiths before Galactica?
    Plastics before the storm can swing
    can cry just as well or better than you:
    no record goes unshattered given
    the time given me from you
    all cracks considered and shorn,
    seasons three through six.

    AGE OF EXPLORATION

    AGE OF EXPLORATION

    I walk into the office and I say
    how now you should be kings and queens
    golden-eyed commanders of wishes
    and they say, your insanity is the
    vessel by which we communicate
    the falling of the worlds’ edges
    off yellowed pages — squared, sharp.
    They say your ears are the ships
    which sail over the painted serpents
    and curling scripts and green,
    and inside these ships are slaves,
    and inside these slaves are swords,
    and inside these swords are sleeves
    hanging over the skins of empresses
    who wear the simplest golden dresses.
    These things leap from the lips
    leaving behind that moth-wing dust
    in tea arrangements without cakes
    or cups or sandwiches sliced into
    partitions which might consensus
    the alighting of lantern dragons.
    I say that’s fair. I say that’s good.
    They say, your eyelids transmit
    a virus unlike any other, a fever
    composed from the viscera that clings
    to the spines of laughing children
    and for whom do they laugh but
    the kings, the queens, the empresses
    which trespass the days and nights
    concealed within your temples.
    I say, show them the way to me
    and I will welcome them in my way
    which is to say I will set them
    to task, trial, to hear the crimes
    for which they are utmost guilty
    golden-eyed commanders of wishes
    sending us to worlds’ edges, water,
    offices to which we did not belong.
