IN JONAH’S CAVERN

-         E. Martin Pedersen (Italy)

 

The original 32 hardheads around

2 horseshoe tables

white members of the board

making grave decisions, taking

action mechanically each day

while defeating thousands of enemies

over a lifetime

several casualties in the fight

are removed or replaced

others disabled resist

some heroes like to listen to radio

others imagine themselves as mere tools

I, however, like your diagonal handlebars

when over my bicycle you leaned

the time I met a lockjawwed heiress

entering a tree-lined street in Paris.
