That Final Thing

Beyond genius

  the spirit flies

Beyond genius

  the mood decries

Beyond genius

  no courses rowed

Beyond genius

  all time disowned

Beyond genius

  the map refolds

Beyond genius

   a world untold

Beyond genius

  the critics gasp

Beyond genius

   no serpent asp

Beyond genius

  the telling stops

Beyond genius

  no on—then off

Beyond genius

  all sight and sound

Beyond genius

  the square is round 

Beyond genius

  no lies are told

Beyond genius

  what’s new is old

Beyond genius

  the heavens sing 

Beyond genius

  —that final thing

 

(Villanova Pennsylvania: August, 2015)
