From the book Elegies
In Memory of a Poet
Staring into the sky,
into empty features,
into the straight as a brace
azure of blindness,
the way a gaze absorbs
into its soaring smoke
goods and chattel, a spurned bequest, tinwear,
everything that is before him,
the way the lap of a lagoon,
the sound, smell and view,
sepulchral strings
of the sisters Pierides
absorb, penetrating
into the singer’s silence
at the edge
of exile, beyond the edge of the end.
