Text of the Poem

Face of the skies
over our wonder.
truant of heaven5
draw us under.
Silver, circular corpse
your decease
infects us with unendurable ease,
touching nerve-terminals10
to thermal icicles
Coercive as coma, frail as bloom
innuendoes of your inverse dawn
suffuse the self;
our every corpuscle become an elf.15
