Poetry for Strangers: Utopia

from the chronicles of the troubadour

the romani poured vinegar wine
the scrofulous silence was serpentine

charlie parker wagered five songs on cities
utopian jazz hounds reveled in their liberties

lou reeds incommensurate demands hollowed the flesh
the sizes of the gods are chanted in bangladesh

devilhanded despair is the soul of the ratsbane song
dead can dance but never for long

hidden in the calash was the wayward muse
riddled was the scumbled light, purple and diffuse
