Poem

Tragicomedy in Three Acts

the queen of feeling
& the king of thinking
& the prince of doing
watched the princess die—

sensible knaves wept
& knave-wives pulled their hair out
while the country
petted its pedigree dogs

the queen of sorrow
and the king of mourning
and the prince of grief
took theirs for a walk
