Rare Laureate

from by Vostok Programme

lyrics

Hang the landscape and braid in the dead
Of one whole century kneeling underneath
Struck each phrase with wit and tongue
Rare laureate through Country’s lungs

Protege marksman of a single page
Breath on the trigger and on the image
Modern turn of the chalk outline
The flag, the flattery, the Guggenheim

Recite what history teaches

Leisure writer with a golden pen
Dramatic tension for severed heads
Morning radio and the printing press
Under soft light in the Midwest

Ripe plums in the fridge
Deep homage to Clement and kitsch
This tightly heightened rhyme scheme
Removed for effect
