That Was the MUSE That Was

Anti-politics Thumbnail  + Miroslav Holub
... Whoever’s prophet material
Had best seek counsel
From the nation
Of the ‘northern lights:’
No velure head-hunter need apply.
No Moulin Rouge mudslinger.
No tyrannous protoplasm
Batting an evil eye...
Lucidity epitomises
The cold ground’s
Imminent banter:
“Where man ends  +
The flame begins.”
And we will never
Put Prague
Or Jan Palach
Back together again.
