pharaoh's journey

  a chamber is a figure 
if a lantern is a thought.

 remarkably thin thoughts falling through
 the linen minds of silk mummies. 

  neatly pressed copper 
filled lanterns light the way.

passage of the damned heiroglyphic
 pharaoh brings shadows to life.

flickering on the corners of the walls they
 pass silently like floating reeds along the nile.

now in that still dry place marbeled orbweaver 
spiders are holy and priest tend to their webs.

passage of the buried eternal eyelid scientist 
wrapped in a constellation of prayers and mud.
