The craziness of the Tutankhamen project

…a staircase destination


Tombs whistling through the Red Sea

Rising from the golden headdress smooth

As a calf’s haunch

Your calves kicking

Legs splayed

Below the fire–ferned sky

…the night raining papyrus

Inking your name on a stick to poke the fire

…bells stringing your ankles

Rest your head — forget everything

…fit the night into a seashell
