We Bless

We bless the house with vodka of US import.
I trust my life over to
new stark wooden possibilities.

I have left the Swedish design
for little more than plain rice,
leopard-printed accessories,
the ease of glow inside
and PNG coffee.

I could reduce this tiny
part of the world to a lofty
vale of tears.

But I am content for now
with ripping off Richard II
