As of yet
Should we be stirred
By any other brought
Mere human beings
Some bring myrhh
Others add frankincense
Slough off gold, and more
Diamonds and diadems
In roughly tumbled places
Slather on stored lamp oil
Allow wormwood to burn
Cleanse a petrified soul
Purify annointed spirit
Prepare to let go bodily
Wake up slumbered giants
Retrograded in disappointments
Released in tainted tatters
Collect up new appointments
Expend them in wisdom
Last; to laugh lustily
At least once more
Filled to the very brim
With borrowed elements
And make any time left

To my brother…Clifford
We will dance again…!
