Water lapping at the steps
of a landed missile
cat paws in roaring tunnels
the outline of an unbroken man
emerging from a pile of torn webs
streets that corner the light
and make it glow
the map on the slant of a pulpit
flickering blue circuits
and bath curtains
a dream arranged by hands of silk
dimpled fuel for a mirror
dim rolling clouds
taken by a hammering diamond.

Farms upholstered with ornamental rain
the force of gasoline for escaped wild ones
a thread phoning in
from a high barrier or sunken land
an eye on the corner
photographed by buzzing strings
the paralyzed whale underfoot
stirring submarine piano.
