instruments and minerals


instruments and minerals

images of sun through a hanging nail

working hands twinned forth their pinnacle

two ribs of soil more provident than lime


he of  six of romanesque unseen

bears child of fruit through winds of hail and sum.

the marriage vows of sulpher starboard side

water to each cry of a sleeping jaw


mother of all knees in a leaning box

more radiant than light from an eastern tree

should death dare sleep one minute more than me

let shape be coloured cribb of equinox


too long in a walking thundercloud of Zeus

in hidden verse where hides the son of youth

visions once of love this turning world

too long the days this fear of sweet rejoice


where shadows light of mass from the tellers eye

let me lend my ear to the old pond as she flows
