“Wreckt, in deep danger, he shook once his head, / returning to meditation. And word had sped / all from the farthest West / that Henry was desired: can he get free / of the hanging menace, & this all, and go?” Berryman

 

the 
   most 
       powerful image absence 
realized in stillness

    the greek herákleion
and giant glabrum 
        bearing pinnate hairs 
gives 
fennel and common hogweed
they produce insects
between june 
      and serrate referring to 
    striate forms 

a reminder concludes 
witnessing 
a people serviced in destruction and
recitation
      
entire 
      worlds l'shana 
       haba'ah couched in desire to rebuild
a third time ushers in 

    this world 
        lovely
    who could
have himselves

conserve children 
no god for thanking
         volunteers agree to be long 
 
    that's 
a shield 
again why do young return home
       
or did you 
honey the ancient 
hospital 
      to succinctly form 

time indicates gore silences the gorge
time gores silence
quiet gorge
