evening            that little hatchet          close to       parallel
our dimension         through       which        people passed

the ends         of ladders          each stanza            precedes
the arrival            the pointing       to a time     bird nested

his request  of her body      charts     bone mnemonically
parts of it              ladders          tattooed        on his throat

and chest            longing               to  order    at whose foot
in which welt        each      attended          who interceded

with           the  cloud ruler       rain              ties the spruce
it would                be brave not          to say             reckless

but                    that was          before           the excavations
rice           wigs             arnica           sad   in a cigar      alley
