or not

The story begins with a dozen of Aztec poets
walking on a Saturn’s moon, plumage
undisturbed by the cruel gods.
Dice stolen from Enki don’t roll properly
in that kind of atmosphere, a deck of cards
(a gift from Li Bai, by the way) is hard to shuffle.
There is only a slim chance of
meeting the enemy, but it is nice to swear
in a world without censorship. It is a pleasure to breathe
in a world devoid of oxygen.
