Calling Marco Polo

Posted on 04 November 2009

Playing leapfrog with my fears
calling Marco Polo in the fog / falling

with nobody there to catch me
they are all sleeping / they sleep

all day & all night & the week-through
the baby is crying

the baby is crying she is watching
Judas chased to an olive tree

where the noose hangs / chased
by crying children

& Judas is no person but a disembodied
kiss / the judaskiss of conversation

what the liar’s eyes slip
to the side / cast downward

like a black fishingline / & the eye color
changes / obscure / like

the oil spill sea.
