One Afternoon Before the War

for Hans & Joosye

Ah! I see what you've got in your hands
an afternoon in the world of LAN
a sealed blue radio

(The night returns for an encore inside a tomb.)

Pray for finesse, on the branch of the arborio
strip it, sing it, fake it
come, wing it, into the river!

Note down: three pigeons
dive under the sun, acquiesce
to Spring!

& for a second
the soy-feathered pigeons
resemble earth after a quake

the agit-props of legendary risks

a universe under another.
