could not grow young again
out of a star to wear its
exultant firmament

as if the whole universe
were its only shoddy suit
or fishing for the blind

transparent manta
of its monocle, a blind
transparent mantis

its every action like
a prayer in collapsing
self-complicating folds

Lamartine's dream
of Jonah, oh springtime
bird in passage.
