Sunrise with Sea Monsters

by Jamie Sharpe 

I mourns sweethearts sins.
I begin, without regard
to grammar. I end,
hoping you won’t read
C.P. Cavafy. Sunrise,
Sunset. Perry Como,
seventh son of the seventh

son, your day dawns on
a vainglorious anagram.
Marry Wikipedia’s sloppy
seconds: Brit painters;
Greek poets; Yank singers. 
My monster brides, you were,
you people, a kind of solution.
