Epistle to Ignatz


1.

O my dear devoir
O my dour devour

2.

Your name:
an arrow

with a rope attached

could pull
this raft

across this river.

3.

O bring memy ordinary:
my traysof soot and sand

4.

Tonight I am awindow
in a cottageby the sea.

5.

O mia paloma blanca
O my desert-dunemy dove,

Who now will
sing the praises

of a natural love?
