 tories dream and croak in the fog! Moloch whose 
 smokestacks and antennae crown the cities!

...the soul of sound?
I thrill as I call it a tuning fork that catches
The waves of mingled music and light from afar,
The antennae of Thought that listens through utmost space.

Of an Ear that tuned me, able to tune me over
And use me again if I am worthy to use....Read more of this...

Were standing on the rooftops,
 Among TV antennae.

...and at the same time victims
Herded together in the marketplace, asleep
Except for certain tentative gestures
Of their antennae, or their imperial claws
Pegged shut with a whittled stick at the wrist.

To the blind abyss in a swirl of sand, goes cold
And archaic in a carapace of horn,

...h deep-set eye staring at the door of the crawfish's burrow,
Waiting for him to appear, pushing ahead,
First his waving antennae, like straws of hay,

Scaffold for colours:
