no more kings

i see new fiefdoms rising,
their coats of arms
sprawling across buildings,
branded into music,
merging, becoming
ever larger

the new kings have
many bodies, their
reach traverses seas;
even when they die,
they are absorbed by
one another, becoming
more powerful

there is no fear here:

the kingdoms have grown so large,
their foundations are cracking

we have planted seeds
whose roots will push
all of them away.
