Enthroned in plastic, shrouded in wool, diamond crowned,
transported in aluminum shoe’d in synthetic rubber, fed by asparagus,
adored by all animals,
ear-lull’d by electric mantra rock, chemical roses acrid in the nose,
observant of large-nostril’d air factories, every crack of the skin kissed by
so man woman child are tender meat become consciously genital with the
shudder & blush of substance
adorned with hair at crotch and brain—beard on lion and youth by fireside.
