The Holloway Series in Poetry Presents at Artvilla Poetry Videos

Egyptian Book of the Dead and Viagra Poem

green alien photoIn ancient times also

there were mind explorers,

body worshipers,

disappointments to their mothers.

 

When time was a blessing

on a too tight rope

they were initiated into

the hearts of baboons.

 

Offerings above, please.

Bodies below.

 

As the dead sun sleeps

in the netherworld each night

spirits return to their mummies.

Ancestors pray.

May their bones be knit together,

their members be made firm.
