649
In the new conglomerate
The sun sits in cloud
White through the scales of gray
To the palisade grooved, curbed--
The sky in reduction
Canyoned.
Shoot the city, hawk dive
Tuck, wide to close sped
Smooth gear slid--
From foreshortened towers shadow-webbed,
To full- frame prey,
And pause, upon a final disarray.

Touching the night, fingertip
Recall day's clarifying
Impulse, the warm and
Sweep of light.
Take the memory,
In her's receding,
Save in lone night.

The shadow's in the grackle in the tree shade
Dark in dark and shooting beams
From yellow eyes,
And spreading coolness thru in-feathered sparks of blue.
Open, beak, silence
In summer her silent gasp
And wings of shadow
Dark, and sun beyond.

636
The jar tyranny of expectation, in ocean
Absence unpossessed of anything but the hour's false measure;
A tourette of hope and calamity
Become a wall in the sand to the water's edge.
We do not conclude. This is.

628
Not to the manner writ
Nor figured in a realm aside to purpose set,
But a bespoke eye in the mirror unmet
In harried stillness, in arrested distraction.
