Talking in a Dead Mall

History’s cold.

Solomon designed a throne
where mechanical animals
would greet and acclaim him:
golden doves. There were lion
machines in Constantinople,
grief had bright eyes.

Salt. Cages.

You should probably not go to dinner
with him.

    That’s a good last thought. I also love these lines:

    ” There were lion

    Absolutely brilliant!
