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
