hoary kingdoms

Their xenophobic
misogynistic gods seem marvelous
like antique furniture: you have
no idea how animals
are using them every night.
But the songs of moths are lost
with the shards of broken windows,
and ascending domains of frogs
and lizards deny imagination.
As to the road signs, they are
inscrutable like the pictograms
on Alpine rugs.
