This is a poem from my chapbook Axtlanadu.

<<Axtlanadu>> Reunited in Xanadu To Samuel Taylor Coleridge and William Wordsworth An Abyssinian maid sings charms Around the whispering sea And on her Aeolian harp she plays A haunted melody. The ancient mariner hears her song. It works like witch's brew, And guides him on an odyssey To magical Xanadu. The mariner meets a balladeer Who tames his piercing cross By listening to his penance about The slaughtered albatross. The balladeer soothes the mariner With odes about his hills And thrills him with a song about His dancing daffodils. These bosom buddies work to craft Lyrical Ballads together. But soon their notes begin to clash And split their love asunder. The lonely mariner sails into Alph, the sacred stream. He finds the balladeer lost in webs Where old strains make them dream. They clear the webs to sing and dance, And weave more tunes together; The curse of the slaughtered albatross Is finally gone forever. <<Axtlanadu>>
