The King
State: Opening.

I'm open.
I always sought that position.
Dignity thrown crudely
into the back of my estate,
slam down the boot,
slam down superposition
                                             PARTICLES
                                             SUSPENDED
Juxtaposition
                                             NITROGEN
                                             OXYGEN
                                             ARGON
                                             CARBON-DIOXIDE
Breath!

I start the stopwatch
                                             BUTTON
                                             PRESSED
                                             CLOSING…

I'm open, as always,
but the estate will pass to my child
                                             MY FIRST BORN
                                             MY DIGNITARY
