He has removed
Structure of one
It's simpler parts


What's coming?
Who first noticed
Return of a comet


Through the silicon crystal
Just the facts
Strange worldview


Strength of mind
Arising of sound
On the mountain ridges


Yoke of language
Faster than the wind
Through the family


A clever spider
A spontaneous cure
Drilling may stop


Denial of harmony
Dull and unimaginative
Phase of clearing


The reclining figures
Radioactive fallout
All bombed buildings


Eyeholes in the casing
Threefold concept
Understood, weighed, sung


The life outside
Take that pleasure
Possibilities of rhythm


Container and contained
Body of water
Why I'm slogging


Threefold concept
Understood, weighed, sung
Dwindled to something


The unitary reality
Glint of splendor
Healthy bamboo plants


A spontaneous cure
Imaginary audience
A numinous center


Explosion of fantasy
Certain deep points
That innocent day


Deep into the tree
The dangler nests
Make the leap


Smooth black surfaces
Explosion of fantasy
Position of the sun


This forested corridor
Loss of memory
The learned tolerance


Coated with honey
That particular anger
Workers and soldiers


Edge of one leaf
Bypass an obstacle
Might learn to speak


He left a message
Could have been
From grief to safety


Horizon was squeezed
Home of the brave
Distressed to find


Puny child of clay
Coils of seaweed hair
Let them all come


Scope of your vision
Attention to errors
Nothing like that


Salt green death
What's in fashion?
Piece of intelligence


Best preserved medieval hall
Unmoving dial
This proves impossible


Good place to be
Seventeen places of worship
Coated with honey


That particular anger
Workers and soldiers
Nothing to detain you


Visited the cemetery
Was a boggy area
News from home


With grace and fluidity
Fine-tune his resistance
Retreat may be necessary


A fallible creature
The learned tolerance
Like being a Canadian
