...> There before our eyes
We saw the vaulted hall of traceried stone
Uprear itself, the distant ceiling hung
With pendent stalactites like frozen vines;
And all along the walls at intervals,
Curled upwards into pillars, roses climbed,
And ramped and were confined, and clustered leaves
Divided where there peered a laughing face.
The foliage seemed to rustle in the wind,
A silent murmur, carved in still, gray stone.
High pointed windows pierced the southern wall

and the Sacred Heart
equally enthroned
in a fantasia of quartz
and seashells, broken

dishes, stalactites

A vice of knives,

 and hear the rings of falling stars, 
 From up above skyscrapers drop and, 
 like stalactites, look down on us. 

 High up above me upside down, 
 stuck like a fork into the ground, 
 my nice light-hearted butterfly, 
 my Antiworld, is getting by. 

 I wonder if it's wrong or right 
 that Antiworlds should date at night. 
 Why should they sit there side by side 
 watching TV all through the night? 
 They do not understand a wo...Read More
