she sips
through exquisite lips
the rules are crude and decks suspended

there is a personal order
disguised as synthesis
crude order and personal synthesis
the sun presides over a kind of synthesis

they banned sunshine in the street
and now we cross in darkness

morons and their distinguished traps
morons with their distinguished motions
motion-sensor morons and their elaborate traps

the easter island battleships
in the shape of huge stone heads
they launched one summer morning in 230 AD
needless to say the planned offensive against the Christmas Islanders
was quickly scuttled
