Maple loop dragon rolls steep fervently
in the grandiose multiplicities
that we find ourselves around
in a constant way,
though not buttered with finance or treason.
You might find it subtle
to fly through emperor penguin hats
while announcing the arrival
of the next Dalai Lama,
but your associations
with professional authoritarians
may fall flat upon impact.
Nevertheless, that shouldn’t stop
your vague forays into the kind fireplace
we call matrimony. Settle down,
raise a dozen schnauzers
and investigate the true meaning of Christmas.
