sullen gradient:
art is complete
in itself, we add
to it & it is
complete again:
as per Eliot:
the best pop
songs excite:
a Latin negli-
gence, subtract
a species or two
& the world,
likewise, remains
earth imagines us:
blunt treadle:
mauve lepton:
a thick music,
mass to thrust:
the voice running
into the corn-
field,  into the
cyst of the corn:
