As electricity's next to distant thunder
Though closer to my eye than clouds,
So is cloaked desire to its proximate
Want, though brightest at the spark
Of need, illuminating only one.
New term free will
The consciousness of bonds:
Constraints from what's unbound,
Broken, is a line here,
Or a trip to see an echo.

Compel, Earth, the sun to stir,
And one bird to call and stalk to unfurl;
Compel each unpublished virtue
Of your nature tie all,
From least to last,
And so doing undo
The very occasions of category:
Make a temple of
An ear of corn,
A winged song of a star.
