The Nacreous Oughts

28 February 2012

venus & crescent & a plane
to the drumbeat of war always war
the only story we know or ever heard
as children heroes & villains
& the white hats win in the end
the long slide into silence
dark blurs in the pale moonlight
nine years getting there
1e3 c5 2Ke2 Nc6 3Ke3
a plusher notion
a harsher thought

another nil opus
determined to live forever

haunters in loop
intersected by an eye

iron houseplant
i water with ash


though 1e4 makes more chess sense, perhaps 1e3 is the better poem
