Exotica

Poesy plus Polemics

 

I am drawn to fabricative vestiges

odd artifacts orphaned by culture

castoff heirlooms of clever-bent candlewax minds

 

melting visions of handsome arcanum

subliminal beds of mathematics

for whose formulas priests and engineers vie

 

curious handiworks rigged of small use

save to elevate medieval cells

of profligate mundane cerebral existence

 

unrepentant assertions of sophists

caught in autocrat teeth by poor students

of Machiavellian critical thinking

 

decorations I hang from sagged roofbeams

and mount over friable mantels

where they’ll burn when the vanitas torch paints my house
