Reclamation~by Paul F. Lenzi





“Electric Night (1979)” by Helmut Middendorf

slipping the elegant noose

makes your anarchy

all the more tempting

exuding its own

contrapuntal allure

with a bevy of bedsteads

to suit every size

of our orchestral armory

dreams ringing brash

with the clash of steel

sabers that drown out

diminutive cannon

and give the siege sleep

of a soft executioner

felled by the lilt

of rebellion
