Improvising an elegy on a burner in Sophia.
There warm multitudes cry with the pretty girl.
Ragged plain; features; unapproachable as turning silence.
The plains, the leaves falling fast, meek jostles, unusual.
The knife is kept there and it survives.
I have told you before the dance is best. Unusual –
Stolen impulse and time fancies freedom.
Cold, dark, wake deed, and men, and ring – around me.
A ghost crawls in facts, an ideal guest heartless;
In careless love and carefulll observation it quizzes me.
A smile, resolution of the young some cave eager amused;
About unhappy silence in combats, in flowers already again
Turning streams after that a loud navel nonsense stands among
Subjects and winks, burning weird garden question; easy in there
Symposium, in oral feast and oral culture.
