A Hymn to Poetry's Jailkeepers




hey will calm the barque


in in
in an


for if the thin and blinking string of the river's ledge
its jade step supporting braque


the carved onyx newspaper
in in
on one


bi-dis-placing corvid term


fervid
upon the transparent string (river (sting))
and upon the jet black infinite newspaper (yellow (theme))
hey


het will calm the bark
whose tree the laminating flow pursley


let them in


your oaken prayer book barge with its bouquets of rioters
dada in expanse of omen


the ugly foot
the ugly ear


what is venus but water in the plain
of dada
brueghel adapting to the mummy hay


the luminous codpiece
across the dark cell


the heavy chains
of licorice


or that they only notice
the single glinting
the dark black veins
that root the sky
to a wrotten skewing
