Highnesses and majesties –
you’ll have to train to be a thief --
to steal, secrete away from everyone
who wants to kneel to you your former
certainty that you were who you used to be --
a random dollop of humanity:
suspend the necessary disbelief
to carry out the grand delusive
strategies of monarchy.
Are you Your Grace?
Is that your face?
You’ll have to sink
into the fizz,
