Prevailing winds, Slava's sure guide,
To which seeming anchor are you tied?
Apparent truth will sometimes mask,
Poetry's deeper more honest task,
To reveal the rot within comes first,
The abscess drained before it bursts,
Malorussiia or Oukraina we don't know,
To greater Los Angeles your people go,
Hollywood took your souls in the dark night,
IKOK surrendered without the slightest fight.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark
