Veckans dikt 113: ”mozambique” av Rodney Koeneke


let us put aside intelligence
thinking is the plague of kings

let us abandon
the pentecostal wine of too much talking

feluccas easing into muddy rivers
flotillas on the high platonic blue

accruing all the pennants
from accidents of blueness

the months of summer turning
in their fiery chemise

pretending to be tired
of their place inside the genre

yet moving with rapidity
in arcs across the plot

which is still a form of thinking
a humming while you’re planting

new crops to strip from hillsides
in springs that comes to soon
