Poetry.Of making many books there is no end,yes nor an arrival ever before the singlepage that will pronounce us as/ we are speechlessFor whoever keens to the sound of boats on watermoved by their dissolving tunesagrees to be frayed by catastrophe/ plunged to the neck in the blue moon's gold.It is by the singular instance of not knowingbut folding up inside the rebel angel's cause/ that we enter a second life.Its ministry for damnation. Its syllabaries of pleasure.
