A Glacial Age

by: MF Nagel

I have reached
A glacial age
Age of bone and melt
Age of cave and calf
A glacial age of ash.

Retreat.
Recede.
Leave a low valley.

Scalper
A
Monument
Mount’tinned

Sauve-qui-peut
Sanbeni’o
                In iced peaks.
Sanction sancire scnct
                In iced peaks.
(Sing a sacrare sonnet
Take thee the altar
Dress
In sack cloth and winter.

In sack cloth and winter
Take thee
The seven rites’
Saint of the seven celestial heavens
Sang-froid.

Taed’ium vit’ae                 Sung out of tune
                Sung out of tune
Sugges’ tio’ fal’ si’
Bay          hold the hounds.
Say          Tenir a bay.

The soothsayers of
Empyrean         empyreans’ seven.
Seven lost suns and moons).

I have reached a glacial age
Age of bone and melt
Age of cave and calf
A glacial age of ash.
