“O for a Muse of fire,
that would ascend
The brightest heaven
of invention,
A kingdom for a
stage, princes to act
And monarchs to
behold the swelling
-Willam Shakespeare
King Henry V

Exploding Head Man

and in that chalk outline where we both lie
I am exploding headman
holding the fuse that blows the universe
till space and time spill out and freeze
and fill the nothing with a million tangled
molecules of you and me and it and what
and how
and us and thee and why and now
