Socrates and Penelope



it was the city of Smyrna
on January 1 1922, Nansen ho!
Here, there is no definitive story
of Orion's belt within
the tobacco merchant's
telephone, and on the River Plate's
Alexander, a Jacqueline
on the incest of names.
Orion rises like steam
from the urine of the gods
and a urine soaked cow hide
goes round the world
patches for massifs
Aristotle Onassis
Oscar Victor India Delta Tango
The bowl was red earthenware
with cups of beech wood
scorpions
Kilo November Delta Yankee
the confused etymologies did found
how cattle for lyre how
lithe the misfit whole.
you tell me no echo for stone.
