The scope of the car's not too large
For leaves,
At new variance
Parted from the branch
And life's beck;
Realigned in chance grace--
Nor emblemed,
Nor diminished, unobserved.

Uncertain's the marrow to prisons of sense
Of nature that snuffs and fans
Its sentient desires to itself un-nature,
And the unfixed prinicple fix,
And taste the pith of the largest in the smallest thing.

Sublime is ordinary,
Edged with comparisons,
As grain in star
To sharp beholding--
Pluck a quality askant
From dull expectation,
By relative, revelation.

Penumbra's sky remembers me
In colors as the hour--
To ocean's yesterday
My natal stroke still tumbles
Salute to shaded eye--
Shadows recall their angle
To my breathing step--
And breath creating world
Depending from my thread,
Til hazard's knife tell umbra.

Immaculate structure
Is the flower through stricture expressed
As air petal-shaping,
As suns curved and coursed in embering space,
As presence by absence molded--
Illusions of distinction
In fold and folded.

Rogue disquisitions
Faster than light
As sermons at c's shrine
Cast lures made
Of what is sought;
Bishops and bankers
In the precincts of the senses.

Indifferent eye
Aspergered oval
Saw mirrors as clear glass
And windows of air reflections
Categorical in a frame.
Oculus apraxic
By custom stunned, custom-made
To suit an angular light--
But when done is future
Let vision name blindness sight.
