Kola Boof



SILVER BELL

Opening boxes,
the road tangles minds
Children think they are new,
Kings
think themselves wise

Opening boxes…there is only water
inside

Comehither martyrs and dreamers

For without the ocean
--the Whale
becomes
a Silver Bell.
A beautiful ornament;
an entombed
clear diamond

that fascinates the damned.
