A STANDARD VIEW
Carl Wilfandisn't there a dragon in all men's stomachs,
that can be born at any second?
isn't that snake a live bearing woman?
isn't that dragon those children in womb?
isn't that standard inside the uterus
of the universe?
isn't this eye myself?
Ore gold doesn't mother the child.
the womb's where I should be
the dragon's my uterus
the insides my universe
of the standard
cemented to gold.
