to Posthumius Terentianus

in their silence a thieves' ergot hung 

between them and marked by the lonche 

of longinus stood in for the contraction

of a knot into diagonals and sword or spear 

sublimed it appeared wound up upon a pun 

transposing a riddle for a name whose 

sacrifice would suffice to render the buggered 

angel as a touch to invisible spaces aye a cry 

best laid in focus where inversions put the 

chorus surrogate in singular and complex 

order lo lie lay lea loo la leh but a hyphen 

or a hylephan cant breeds and a sphinx 

cant listens
