Life’s script, playbook he took
another century, his courtiers
new world dawn Renaissance
home on foreign land or water
studied a gambit of knowledge
to walk hallowed halls or battle
on a distant front, to scatter
claims of chance, wages paid
losses learned, in art of words
mixed molecules for commerce
alchemy to dress, color walls
paint the hull, before departing
music linked, poetry catalogue
read upon, billows of open sea
to gather, new cloud fantasies
projects, to redesign his dreams.
