As Xantippe Whispered Into Idle Socrates’ Ear
This has to do with mathematical
divination of earth and metal
bearing us through the daily
occupation of life which
which is the true occupation of life.
This has to do with compression
and strength so elegant
tresses are unfazed
by heavy progress
to hold march of elephants and time.
This has to do with sweet Ophelia’s
death by distraction
or a branch
and a river sucking her in with lust.
This has to do with shattered parts
revealed in a blueprint
of the draftsman’s
as a workable means to create us whole.
