One gnashing of teeth
makes a star fall billions of miles away
A tiny turn in a flower makes angels turn

The flutter of a strange butterfly
Is in my mouth my heart my hands my feet
As the universe
In and around me cry

Large raindrops fall
Busy making the circuit
from Precambrian days
Puddle to pool to river to sea
The humming beauty bivouacing inside me -
Sea to ocean to snorkelling whales,
fun, vapour, cloud and sky
Trysting with the cosmic fall
O, my, my !

Charged and seeded, full of child
Weeping, heavy with labour, wild
fat and veined, in ecstasy
blue belly filled
with water, corn, life, dreams distilled
From tubs of tangerine
In earnestness and sin

The angel and the butterfly
Over my head this evening flew
Lifting up the crimson sky
O, my, my !
