Night's Carousal

For a night's carousal
The vibrations were wanted
In high demand
The blue vibrations
Light trembling
Light vibrating
With music vibrating
The man was without socks
This heated night; a monkey
arose out of the garden waters
low; it rose just as wraiths do
on rare nights just
on the Valletta waterfront
arise and fall and scream
and scream again:
tonight
there is a hand that's
freezing all the sounds
not just the music notes
gobbling fishes just under
the sea-bosom gurgle;
how
vexed and rare the scrutiny
of night

vessel
of
the
night
rare
vessel
rare
nights
passing
the
skeletons
came
to
be
waiters
at
the
buffet
of the
night
people
how
rattled
their
bones
in
their
frac
dresses
palms
of
bones
they
carried
plates
on
golden
plates
with
turkeys
and
roast
pigs
smoking
