weight

I am - the
weight of a hot air balloon,
chain at the end of drapes,


jewel in your crown,
weighty, set -
elegance and worth
weightier than you, gold.

I am - a
maker of kings.

I - give you trajectory
with you behind you
away from you even.


give you love,
give you helplessness,

intoxicate you
with charm and the sex
of power, and that of
destiny.


I am - a
maker of kings;


a sieve you pass through,

a signpost, a bus stop,

a valet a prostitute
so you don't drive alone.


I am - a
maker of kings

and I will die
without royalty in my bed
or a crown on my head.


- my immortality is
in all of them kings.

I am the -
weight they carried
for their worth,
charm they fell in love
with,
jewel in their crowns.
