   "Tibetan Book of the Undead"

This tomb may decline and begin, but
it is smoothly true

Cydonia's far aspired glare
praised never

Sedna is Tutsi Andes, despair's a book
our mammoth kin twine in the kind Maremma
a coral tor spiralling woe
arm of rorqual half vending mercy

"Mikhail Bakhtin, exiled in Kazakhstan, used his work on Dostoevsky as cigarette papers, after having smoked a copy of the Bible." --Stuart Kelly, The Book of Lost Books (2005)

1952 Vincent Black Lightning.
