The Measuring Flesh

All the animals are moving
in their fine manicured steps;
ďA million years ago,
the flesh was stripped from meĒ.
They survey the lie of the riverís surface
while I glare the glare
of the last of my kind,
of this,
my great blue castle in the night.
A shriveled rose,
here in the measuring flesh,
the measuring flesh,
while a nameless giant slips in and out of the Nile.
