Today , this day today
this still life of mine astray
a table trance of bowl and knife
the China cup with teabag edging
its water lucid yesterday
a roque rolling wave
from Kamaloas lost sea
where fish swarm from arched waters warm
abound the ancient valley with royal bodies furious .
hovering tween the terrible turmoil
birds circling with no control
a flying machine about to fall injurious .
my mind breaking its shell
a feather drops from the wind
this lush valley to live in .
the lover kissing my neck a holy shiver
over the face of creations water , the place God knows
Behold the mark of archangel Raziel .
Do you know how old the wind is
five hundred thousand years long so curious .
come upstairs with me my love
to the golden wall where a door now stands whether
it did not before , you should know
the place is holy close to Jehovah’s body .
Come upstairs with me , my love
to find my scarve for I hear
the beginning chant and I’m afraid , I fear
to be alone in this still life of mine
a sliced silhouette , a redemption sign
today , this day today .
