Leave Them Elect

the private ruminations, studies
penciled scratchings
filled out in the charcoal
of private experimentations,
the curve of a rib
solar plexus,
the dimple beneath
the small of a woman’s back,
like legwork,
a travelogue,
from here to Liguria,
the plan for a battle avoided,
calls for trace denounced
Christmas crackers popped in celebration.

There was the dire contract,
unsigned, unwitnessed
lost apostle
to a tribe only found
in Herodotus or Narnia
monopod evangelist
selling the redemption of soda cans
the fizzy gesticulations
of Calvinistic football fans
certain their determinisms
will not leave them elect.
