The blue blanched figures – system of bird –
possess the future in the singing spring,
syrinx opulens, the eye a ring
noon will burn in like a perfect word
in a breathing sentence the silence blurred.
Principally throat, motion arriving
aural integral or static wing
come to this remonstrance, harm, high, heard
and white kept opiate the nothing wides.
Palliative the skewed sky shackles, flails.
High integument that curts and glides
and beads the waters where its silver sails
the streaming numbers, aureate scales.
Enough says the girl and screams and hides.
