No half-shell rock

or open-faced clam work basking here,

I am Sphinx, see me roar!


Making a broad, solar statement,

when you stand on

little toe looking up with twenty-twenty vision,

and you're still stopped cold.



by the weight of its limestone


and a very disciplined sandy, stark presence.


Petting a very nature,


of a courage and stoned foresight.


From lasting, toiled prints

left in its matrix, in its backbone.

With a headdress message

and an unspoken language,

of being the guard, of known, and unknown

cosmic dust in the wind.


Which once was the greatest form

of ancient ruling,

Ra's pleasing handiwork

concentrating on its glory below.


The new, barge passages

that keep on flowing into

heart and mind,

from being in its space,

from the one lasting encounter

in the desert of the kings.


The hot sands

of crystal memories blowing

through this eternal, decorated heat.
