Silly Empires (Tricks Are for Kids)

Sipping coffee
pondering the Ottoman Empire
Empire dresses
and marveling at fallen columns…

It’s easier to look at rain
and know which way the wind blows.
Who knows when all this disarray
will get sorted out. Well then…

Sipping soda…
Instead I’ll think of Rome in summer
summer sandals
and Vandals taking photographs…
