the abyss

erasing cranes at home
the man with the shaved head
was soon braying
with enteric volts
at a woman be-
tween dog and wolf
an opera about the tower
of Babel led us to be-
lieve that the archer might per-
ceive a higher note
than any could sing
the cranes once found positions
in an area not visible to the center
of the circle in which to draw
their dances (behind the screen)
it was two summer days
on the fawn planet
the train of inertia will deliver
the schoolchildren
of time
after a long deliberate
and cryptic repetition
of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
