Scierogenous II: Spotlight on William Landis



Blind date with Ma’at
William Landis

It happened very easy, though she was a smart
accomplished college girl, a senior at Harris-Stowe.
A sophisticated lady I took her to an art museum
The halls were pretty empty it was after 7 pm.
Walking past a Botero she had something to tell
She wasn’t truly normal, she was born with a veil
She had visions—all the works of art had a tale
She paused and said not all of them end very well

She’d go off in a gaze and get lost in a trance
When she came from it, I said that I wanted a glance
We walked around a corner there was a gold sarcophagus
Suddenly we locked lips she pushed my back to an obelisk
Beside a hieroglyph of Thoth she wanted to show me the truth
Beneath the eye of Horus she knew just what to do …
