Cecilia, Queen of Coffeemugs

Cecilia is art installed.

Between and betwixt




red socks

a broken ear-ring -

the second of which you will find in

the museum of damned innocence.

A hair or two

Folds of skin.

You have to pay a foreigner price

at the gates of this museum,

for they guard the last remains

of Cecilia, Queen of Coffeemugs.

Here lay Cecilia, Queen of Trinkets,

For whom minarets were painted

In comic sans.

For whom the sun cracked through winter shrouds

For whom deconstructionists wore donkeyhats

Catholics wore condoms.

Here lay Cecilia,

That rejoiced in the trumpet of death.
