“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


       powerful image absence 
realized in stillness

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

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

    this world 
    who could
have himselves

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

time indicates gore silences the gorge
time gores silence
quiet gorge
