Luxorius, Opera Omnia or, Duet for Sitar and Trombone

 

Premature Chariot
 
You always shoot out first and never last, Vico,
because you need to get hold of that part
you’ve softened with your pitiful, constant stroking.
The only time you’re able to, somehow, hold
your horses, is when you let the sly guy,
who’s paid you off, come from behind.

 

The author of poems and epigrams, 6th-century Roman poet Luxorius – the “North African Martial” – is known to have lived in Carthage during the last years of the Vandal occupation. Linguistically and culturally, his work straddles the Classical and Medieval periods.

Art Beck’s publications include Luxorius’ Simply to See (Poltroon Press, 1990), Rilke (Elysian Fields, 1983), and the chapbook Summer With All its Clothes Off (Gravida, 2005). His work has also appeared in the journals Alaska Quarterly Review, Artful Dodge, Invisible City and Translation Review. He lives in San Francisco.
