Kit Kelen #514 - each page is a room in the palace


514
each page is a room in the palace

now that it's summer all night
the only dark is dreaming

words pile
until the poem's lit

words furnish
where the image burns

be shown to a truth
of how it was so you will be

what pomp
to fix it for a wall

like last days
of a life you've known

dizzy with wings
and the world many-cornered

there are more rooms
than days remaining

under every treasure
is love

so many mansioned
if it were written, books wouldn't hold

it's all a tree like Christmas
this home

you've come in
through an open one

is there a window
looks out?

the writing from the other side
appears like this when framed
