Giza Geezer


A sequestered Sphinx
is just compacted silica

and yet here sobriety serenades
shaded surroundings.
Shove a parasol in

and you have a mighty cocktail.
What follows? A saga
of burgers, bad teeth

and a botched heist.
You've got the gist of it now.

Heavy eyelids like Suns
carried on the heads of the immortals.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After

Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
