GLOBAL NIGHT CAR
See him fly far above all flat lands, fallen angel
in pitch-black nights! 24 hours above sands and seas –
Alas! Once again no golden border boy to be uncovered,
just spinning globe, night semen, broken water: yes, yes, all that again!
Again descended earthwards, age 33, he lets himself be driven,
Bentley limousine, through godforsaken cities, Armani suit, Dolce &
Gabana sunshades, Cristal champagne uncorked. The lady on the backseat,
Marlene Dietrich legs, Mae West bosom, almost.
