Not Be Essence That Cannot Be



            Wild-Woman & The Thinking-On Of Putrefaction


                                          the subsoil in
                         the territory
           & birds were found living     the binding power
                                  was joyful

                                           now Woman has thrown
                      the scientific cowardice    the
                  mocking forbidden

                                    street
                                    sewer
                                           the distant backdrop
                Divine service    the matter
                                  of the
                                  skin
                                          the sun between the

                                 spine
                                 bones
                                        wonder of unknown cause

        generation of the nucleus/
                                      the TOTAL MASS

                                            to bombing &
                                            construction
                    an eagle flies over
           the ravages      of Frozen waste      & disappears
to warm regions

                                      the approach
                                      to home &
                                      the land
                                      The wealth
                                      of Great Rivers
                                      the winging
                                      System
                                      readily
                                      exploitable

            made into desert (interior)

                                   vileness in industry
                                   consumption in Pacific
                                   Ocean        A hostile
                                   climate      makes birds
