Glorious Maine

from by Alejandro Keswick



Oh, what a glorious Maine
the crown of the King is residant within
Oh, unaffected by trains
though their image recurs through the width of his words
And though his worst wit does remain
literarily literal, I’ve still saved a shelf for his name

First acquainted with him I became
through the fears of a friend when they felt undefended
I imagined he’d suffered the same
and I stayed up alone with his tenebrous tome
Oh, what a clamorous claim
but the crown of the King kept my counsel and sharpened my fangs

And so I named my first guitar after his carnivorous car
Yet no demon inside of it dwelled
For when in the kitchen it fell
It repaired itself not, though the thought I found solemn and swell
