Eden relinquished, he hauled
his bruised cadaver
from the bog. He rode
on sunfish, soothed
his aches in ocean pools, kindled
a flicker to an incandescent glow.
The junk of centuries, he sorted
into piles; ammunition to malign
anyone brave enough to smite his intent.
Mischief in retirement: he could leave
greedy short traders and fly by night bankers
to rip-off bushed administrations and (Blair) witched principalities.
