gustav will have a new nationality

i
want to battle for your beauty
until you
turn into klimt
a quilted
painting where you
become a
finished puzzle

i want to build a bulldozer for
war
be a fighting seabee
that knows
nothing illegal in politics
creating only
safety in runways,
where you
could model for the warriors
paint you
on their planes before
dropping silence
on the nothingness floor
below

in violence i
discover you
and in construction i
can recreate you

afterwards

your painted beauty will
be kept safe
in
a diamond mine
where all of history
is kept ready
for the winner
and the heroes can
rush in from hollywood
or bollywood
and tell the world what
really
didn’t happen…….
