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.
