The Burgundian Version

The peacock, sole of birds, does not make eggs. 
The peahen does not sit on them.
They propagate
through the eye
of each other, narrowed in self-estimation
to profit by iridescent tail.
It is written that Satan invented this bird
& clapped his own wings crying: I did it all with colors!

The man who looks like Jean Genet
may be Gilles Binchois—
admittedly a less familiar name
but what is time for
except to live in with such neighbors.
Or William Dufay.
Poet’s eye and butcher’s chin—
evident musicians.
Robert Kelly
