The City of Ynmilmyr
Where am I found enwombed
Where they speak the glimmered Galactic?
O Love, where muttered be the lofty tones
Of space and healing’s tongue?
Where’s heard quicksilver song of comets,
The while-full Life’s soft kiss on brows
Down-pressed and whispers in one’s ears?
Words too sweet for silence
Soar in glistering sonic orbs,
Star-vivid as I float through umber skies &
Sleek-dim shapes of craft swim by.
How many spirits grew at the stalk and fell,
Fell far down & fled into peaceful obliviousness:
Before I slumberously arose from pale green pod
To meet my brethren-fledge?
My awareness, black water drop,
Balloons from leafy sanctuary
Through the council of zephyrous stars
That guard this dun metropolis—
By bright panoply
Glancing nadir-wise—I behold clouds far below.
Wispily flowing scripts, they sweep credulity—away.
For I was born here of a beanstalk
Into a shell of green-brown skin:
Into where the mists are magic
And everyone naps eterne
In their warm pea pods sans sin.
