IN THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOWS

???????????????????????????????
P.E.Nelson #52 – Aug.21/13

“The North Pole is not where it used to be.” Lawrence Ferlinghetti

And the pyramids were no longer in the
Valley of the Kings.
Did this mean she was no longer in Kansas?
Her mind played tricks constantly,
this much she knew, or thought she knew
But blue was blue or was it ? After all Memphis
was where the pyramids were, right?
No, no—Elvis was the king but he died , still,
he knew where Memphis was…
She decided it would be best to climb to the top
of her pyramids, lay down behind them, where
no-one would think to look for her
Pray for freezing weather, and sleep forever…
