"My Very Exciting Magic Carpet Just Sailed Under Nine Palace Elephants"
invigilator · Ottoman urn
Viking indigo · sauterne
ruby of lost sunsets · psaltery twang
slowly they burn
the song · no longer dead on the page
its portals · the one return
i have danced there · though i do no more
the place is finished · and rimed with firn
"Nobody knows how they did it..."
