Highnesses and Majesties

 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,
and think
it is.
