SCION OF STOCKHOLM... 1913-2015
T. Transtromer     [Stefanie Bennett]
 
 
 
He said, clinging to life,
“It is hard
To believe in
A bland phenomenon
When you’re the known
 
Optical source
Of the baker’s dozen,
 
The Magi who chants
A fond lullaby,
 
And an airtight
Chapter of doom...”
 
With that, the room
Spun its
Meteor shower.
Its welcoming mat.
Its Divine Comedy.
 
 
 
GONE       [Stefanie Bennett]
 
 
Seeing as how no-one’s
Tied to any
Shore anymore –,
And we’re
- Most of us,
Kicking
Over the traces...
 
Why then is it
Grandpa’s
Got
Double-braces
On!
