Should he who split his children with a cure
Have brotherless his sister on the handsaw.

Yea the dead stir,
And this, nor this, is shade, the landed crow,
He lying low with ruin in his ear,

So the ball fail,
So solve the mystic sun, the wife of light,
The sun that leaps on petals through a nought,
the come-a-cropper rider of the flower.

The seal of fire,
Death hairy-heeled and the tapped ghost in wood,
We make me mystic as the arm of air,
The two-a-vein, the foreskin, and the cloud.

rows of books
behind me,
I scratch my thinning
