THE QUEEN IS GONE

THE QUEEN IS GONE

She was my parents’ and grandparents’ world,
she had it cushier than all of them.
My son knows Freddie Mercury,
not sure if he knows her,
hasn’t been to Britain.
I went with my folks when I was young.
My dad was in England as an exchange student,
when he was young, maybe twelve.
We visited Marjory,
dad was at her place.
Marjory almost like the prime minister,
but a much nicer person.
We went to England and Wales
in a small car.
I even got to swim in the sea
somewhere in Wales on the coast,
no-one was there.
Beautiful, though cold of course.
Queen Mother was still around,
not in Wales at the time.
Freddie Mercury and friends,
I saw them in Vienna,
my first big concert
aside from classical music.
Boy, that was a long time ago.

ROSKILDE CATHEDRAL

and death shall have every single dominion
every single sovereign of the realm
every hour st. george slays the dragon and it lets out a frightful wail
every morning there is the harbor there are the ships from ancient times
and when the walls came tumbling down joshua’ s men killed every man woman or child they could find
there are the fields by the cathedral there are the stones in the old ships
every flower every fruit every child is more important
and you can have every single dominion
every single sovereign of the realm
