Experiment 9

Teeveelerium Tremens

page 46

Teeveelerium Tremens

I see the figure on the cross
Black jerseyed
a bright-eyed orange glaring poodle
piddles on a blue silk
And by the fireplace an old bulky woman
moves from side to side
towel hanging from shoulder head bent
but never looking
she remains fire stoking
Now a world comes into sight
and a globule explodes into light
and a flight of unknowns pass through
a windjammer
Another tower of Babel television mast
stretching into infinity yet finite
by its wretched onlookers
The three-pronged spire is likewise
a mass of Shakespearean mauves
spotting the blue
