Text of the Poem

Face of the skies
preside
over our wonder.
Fluorescent
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
