–after Emmanuel Hocquard

Samantha is
Samantha

Is my most beautiful, stolen poem
(Stolen from The Druids
who in turn had stolen
from The Greeks
who in turn had stolen
gods from Aegypt-

words from the god
of all things written-

deeds dead to the cool
touch of her shoulder)

What is most beautiful is stolen
Samantha is Samantha
