Fact democratic

The popular imagination makes bastards
out of princelings and whipping boys
out of plague-bearing chaplains, themselves
illiterate, and growing more womanish.
Dancehalls and sparrows, says Pessoa
to Noah nudging him to his plywood raft,
dancehalls and sparrows and unlit rooms—
there are no birds fit for service,
just moose growing fat, more womanish—
