HEART THREAD: A Fugue, Part One


Liturgical responses of all
wind and rain are answers
let an island be a proposition
in Euclid.  Parse the rapture.
Words that need to be said over and over
no measure 
if you can’t count them are they really there?
Who is the enemy in the epic?
Is it the king or the thought of the king?
Cold knees of chivalry
brooms for breakfast and a horse
hawk aloft small birds will flee.
