‘products of wealth and privilege … from different planets’

Wikipedia Poem, No. 800


    reclusive one

     brash improbable courtship
red-carpeted enmity 

      step in a gamble 
       of counterstruck 

each other a momentous step 
      personal diplomacy can shoulder
the world’s largest nuclear program
