The Book fell down and built a crown
and children ran and held him up
and then the crowd began to heave
and then she cried, “pretty please.”
And from nowhere the line occurred
it moved from now to yesterday and back
again the story played until the final
moment rang so out of tune
and he was born to set it right despite

it all begins with in the little campground

near Pink Mountain where beer costs $12 and tea,

for those who drink it, teases warmth, pacifies.
