2512


















2512
At this exhalation
Came a pause to catch the tail of a thought
Til the pause was sovereign,
As a surface to an echo,
As forever to a breath:
By this unremitting heart
Am I jailer of myself.

1973b
For instance an object,
The underside of a leaf in darkness,
Furnished with a voice;
A lamp-lit dailyness
Into signs translated:
The underside of a leaf,
Spear shape, shield, escutcheon,
Ensymboled so,
Becomes me.

Not grief but calculation
Stood upon fine ceremony,
The public rose and private tear,
The crispness of the linen
Made a wholeness for the outsiders;
Your mask of one in shared grief,
Must alone be subtracted, one from one.
