There was a voice whispering in the jungle.
Beneath fitful circles of mosquitoes.
A circuiting, a hum. Longueurs of river-
moss, a silvery cirque - one angle-vector,
ivory. Gray wave-splash in the backwash,
tidal gravity - where ingots of gold repent
to silver minae, copper mites; a stream-
bent parallax (Mammon to mimosa's
spectrum crown). Summer's looming
honey locust. Beside babbling brook
within Babylon book, cornered Acorn
John (gold oueil of Pequod-flummery).
A cold profession shipped sail
from paint-filled windy coin,
whirligig realm (your own);
Caesar's wilderness, or Israel?
Rome was not built in a dhou
nor moon pent in a milkweed-
pod, my friend - its cresting mead
dandled bumblebee's black-yellow
elephant-flight (copper periplus).
From such minimal rock lifted
bright wave of Abraham (soft
aching moss cribbed in papyrus
hippo-pot). Archimedean Medusa
levers each flock with a simple kiss.
Its longing-latitude equals this -
hers be the heartache. Hers the pieta.
Some more Font-mumble.
