81 His Toy Takes Off
19... all systems hnefatafl go.
Square one. Fold up your golden RI game.
2 seconds now. Venice to Sutton Hoo.
Way over fatal Henry's phantom fame
[no sugar now] the stars concrete & ever-same
irrigate a mirror image, balanced
on an orange L-shaped gyroscheme.
& Leo halo = mass x horizon event [entranced].
Binary, buried men & buoyant coffins
make a comeback now on scaffold stage--
barbarians go Dutch in paper gondolas,
& somber subway harmonies ring for the page
whose queen translates my thorny hide & seek
& saved my life just for a new song's sake.
