Plain American Language

I cut a sliver/of WC William's finger
and placed it inside/my philosophy...

Knowing full well that the earth, lizard crawling
on a tilted axis,
would spin upon the sight of her
would that the earth would spin at the sight of her.

She controls the pits of him
the riptides and pools of him
the entrails of him the trails of him
how they blink, would that they'd blink
and set wind lauding the bricks and windows
of city buildings, wings that spin circles

City of spinning circles, would that you
Would, in light of love, int he light
And love would contest not
of its amber vision again,
that is to say, its amber vision is the power
that fills the canyon river and paints it amber.
