Suibine with Binoculars.
The world bursts into a bubble of foam,
lo, a new world is born, beginning,
not knowing what future can happen,
what cannot be taken from the beginning.
A Blake is born from agricultural
to clockwork time
to USA, French & industrial
revolution, end of the Jacobean
claim to throne
as a Cardinal in the Vatican.
Renaissance through Reform,
a predecessor to the unforeseen
Hanoverian Victorian muse
with Her gunboats to rule the seas.
Does he follow, aged in his pent mill, romances
of the aesthetic Shelly & fierce Byron
etching over Milton´s angels, Christian devils,
returning them via routes to the firmament:
But O Jerusalem, O City of God, you cannot
have it all, you cannot win it all, but fall,
not even through Suibine´s binoculars
focused on his Martian moon brain,
even he must be found in a RIP tomb
under reference myths anonymous.
