Awakening in Ganz Hall*

History plays again

plate glass and metal balustrades

pageantry’s dress

tails and tie, capricious

bow, falling into

remembrances of Liszt

a scherzo between bed

and linen, your flirting

keys to the

tomb again,

shame’s sheets

are smoothed, your elegant

re-creation sings

and mastery names

secret bodies

swept from our own

bedroom floors

*Constructed by Louis Sullivan at Roosevelt University
