original poem (dedicated to Joe Lincoln)

When I called Through light gauze
Your Egyptian eye
A Lapis boat sailing up the Nile’s blue fan
Afloat the wings of Amon Ra
The savoir sun shines down
In bands of gold and turquoise hippopotami
shut tight as the lid of a sarcophagus

Tones of hammered dulcimer’s were heard
The Pharaoh’s on the phone with me
“What news of Hatshepsut and Seb…
What about the cats and rams?”

What are these markings in the sand…
Your drew so deftly…with side-turned hand?
