walk upon the sky

among the sun and the moon and the stars
walk upon the sky

i walk upon the sky.  i’m making my sky-making earth.

i am the darkness in it, a many-being’d brain. i forbid me, and command

and tempt me. i try, i will, i dream, i quail, negate, deny.  i shut

my eager lips, i clamp my teeth on my taboo-tormented tongue.


how can i sing the glittering jewel of dew and oh, all being’d gods, to whom?

each eye a dewdrop, knowing as well as i do the sighing sweetness

of a spring morning, the textured beauty of time-long thought,

the wash of rain, the nagging kiss of pain, the pain of kiss.
