Flooding, big --
Go blind at once, today --
Ring-narrowing Day under --
At high noon, in --
The hourglass buried --
Behind the charcoal surfaces of sleep --
Go back and add up --
Half-mauled, mask- --
From fists white with the truth --
Noisemakers shoot into the light: it's the Truth --
You forget you forget --
Crackpots, decomposing --

Free of dross, free of dross --
Soul-blind behind the ashes --
Next-door-neighbor Night --
The ropes, stiff with salt water --
Out of angel flesh, on --
Upholster the word-hollows --
Walls of speech, space inwards --
Four ells of earth --
Naked under death leaves --
Stone of incest, rolled away --
As loud colors, heaped up --
The chimney-swallow, sister --
White, white, white --

Nightsources, distant --
Unwashed, unpainted --
Lilac twilight daubed with yellow windows --
You with the dark slingshot --
I gave a chance --
Proverb on the Wall --
The aural apparatus drives a flower --
Open glottis, air flow --
Raised bog, the shape of --
Particles, patriarchs, buried --
And force and pain --

The splintering echo, darkened --
Nowhere, with its silken veil --
In the most remote of --
O little root of a dream --
Don't sign your name --
