Example text

Not at any other now do I need you less than in previous Autumns, for the familiar and delectable tearing in the ring of my pelvis and the hot cloud fattening under my ribs, merge with the leaves' urgency and the moon's tight-fisted tension. With this suspense and the concentration of desire, I make my instrument of destruction and creation. When Time shall bring my arms above and around the granite of your shoulders, and I am lost in the folds of your cloak; my waiting assuaged in the cavern left vacant by your eye beneath your hat brim, 36 my extension will shorten, my aim will quirk, my concentration will sputter and the old work of will and incantation will dry up, forgotten.

The mountain is slow in the process of hatching. It is cutting a predator instead of a tooth, and the three eggs, bleakly gleaming from their nest on the balustrade, freeze inward from the crackling surfaces of shells, through pyrite yolks, to agate verbs, unwinged and aging. 57 A TRYST BENEATH A BIRD HOUSE You have gone up into your head, and have vanished completely. What can be going on up there? The lights have been awakened all at once. The ladder which you must have climbed, no longer props your chin.
