9 – Of Post-Industrial Transnationalism

Dickens often spoke
of animals, Id, art, lust

some countries have more than others
and national, we bifurcate dogma

the migrating Monarch butterflies know
migrating Monarch butterflies
pre-industrial dust
of a country for old men

the globe as village
as goldfish bowl

we sing somnambulant
of post-industrial transnationalism
and its chances for transubstantiation

the Pope has declined

short-sighted movements were eclipsed
by dance, revolution
constructions teetering skyward to infinity

we sing in
our usual tone-deaf élan
of a post-breakfast champion
