Choler, my lord, if taken rightly

Choler, my lord, if taken rightly

(Lawrence Helm)

These hieratic musings

Unbosom healing

Power, word-link:

I sit engendering

The forms given me --

To suggest I make

Them up is unthinkable.

Disjointed as a stork

Raising his head

From a pond,

I bring out

One offering

After another.

It is what I do

Best. The others

Rest on the bank

Eating their fill,

Laughing at their

Private jokes

Which I can't hear --

My head beneath the water.
