ADULTERERS

 

    

The world is a temple where the vertical supports
 
    sometimes execute its inhabitants with eloquence
 
when a FOREST of symbols people women with mensonges
 
    which then reflect them in reflected siblings
 
 
    
As long echoes confound us from a distance
 
    in a dismal but profound reunion vast as night
 
suffused like radiation--as perfumes COLOR
 
    the responsive sound language enslaves us to
 
    
    
Scents fresh as the bottom of a baby
 
    sweeten OBOE players leant on elbows
 
in their praries and rich others
 
    perverse and triumphant in the in
 
 
 
Finite choice of things—its benison of flat
               
    tery like amber and musk their chants trans
           
port as children SENSE the encased
 
    tangle of their errant spirit erased
