A current under sea
Picked his bones in whispers.

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.

"I can write the saddest poem of all tonight.
I loved her, and sometimes, she loved me too."

Life is an ominous loop of sensation. Understanding encompassed by receptivity, aura embodied through interaction. Without indignity we become gods in our own. Arrogant and simple in ways, the negligent are deluded and unconscious in thought. Forthright the privileged and unearthed the humble; life doubtlessly caters repetition and weak is the authority to bring forth change.

And over all the sky—the sky! far, far out of reach, studded, / breaking out, the eternal stars. – Bivouac on a Mountain Side; Whitman

Oh! What a tangled web we weave
When first we practice to deceive!

I met Murder on the way -
He had a mask like Castlereagh -
Very smooth he looked, yet grim,
Seven bloodhounds followed him.

Out flew the web and floated wide;
The mirror crack'd from side to side;
"The curse is come upon me," cried
The Lady of Shalott.
Some say the world will end in fire;
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
Cross the threshold have no dread.
Lift the sheet back in this way.
Here is little Effie's head.
Whose brains are made of gingerbread.
Draw a crazy picture,
Write a nutty poem,
Sing a mumble-gumble song,
Whistle through your comb.
Do a loony-goony dance
'Cross the kitchen floor,
Put something silly in the world
That ain't been there before.

We looked at each other and that was all.
Two lives, a moment, fullness, bliss.
At the fifth floor she got out and I went on up
knowing I would never see her again,
that it was a meeting once and for all,
that if I followed her I would be like a dead man in her tracks
and that if she came back to me
it would only be from the other world.

Sister, don't save me
don't make me the jewel
at the hilt of your guilt
savior is another word
just toss me a sword
and stand back
