the king rounded up all the insurgents
listened closely to their gibberish
for some sign of an omen or portent
all night — all week

soon he had collected all of their wisdom
into a book he titled so
A Guide To The World’s Most Fantastic Monsters
and I read it searching for some new feeling but
the monster that you run from doesn’t exist
