Maître Frenhofer

You are the unknown masterpiece,
lone planet signalling how?

[wave fire alliance]

Flies buzz
round an ivory rhyton
their green metallic bodies
rendering them knights errant
in a Pas d'armes, but
these flies buzz
round a hollow mishapen


Cinderella was beautiful, as
was Gilette, and a bit of a trouble-maker,
but what fetish could revoke
the joke that the foot
was not a symbol
of the feat
in its single?

The noisy bell.
The fairy tale.
apo tes rhyseos

[In other words]

The moral was not madness,
but blindness...
