Marty Weil: Poetry

The Blue Lion


Like a Dunnage hat containing a sidereal ship
The Blue Lion, the Tardis of Einsteinian principle
contains more volume than Euclidian measure allows.
Her cryptic markings suggests the product of advanced mathematics.
She can materialize and dematerialize.
Her aerodynamic style transports me
to the days of playing on my noble lord’s grounds.
She is from either the past or the future.
She steps through a portal
to Berlin in the twenties
to appear in the Threepenny
or time warps to Berkeley
to the moment of her conception.
But really
The Blue Lion gives no hint
of what you’ll see once through the door.
