Linear B

Star shaped fish, martial

Falling from lambent skies

Under the great dipper

Of cosmic truck, galactic

Crushed drop of human love

In tubes fallopian

Projects Moses in dimensions 3,

Onto ziggurats, pyramids hybrid avatar

Sleeping chamber for boy Pharaoh

Grey haired fairy, fugitive

Paradisiacal reject, spermatozoa.


Stretch him out in diagonal shapes

And measure offsets from heaven and hell

Today a fugitive pendulum

Seeks justice from time.
