Genuflect and Shield Me

Genuflect and shield me
From instruments and doubts that silk
Beyond the hemlock indecision,
Prosper me and rejoice
Over my wakeful inside
Outs and secret
Nothing matters except the downward
Shiny figures weeping in the joys of
Thy deeper nightward watch.
Intensity and separateness have
Haunted all our days, and did
We not fear the clouds
And reckoning when the sea had
Gathered itself together.
Only once was the ghost of teaching
Children harried on the stone and
Oozed upon the witless
Incorporate the paradise offending
And swaggering their own invincible
Invective. In the secret time when
Nothing matters come with me to
Eden leave behind the strange
Instructed longings for
Calumny, take to the burning
Sea and wishful instead for the
Selfsame misread star and
Bleeding, never mind the farewell
Stop the vicarage houses veils
The blissful enter into
Oblivion and trail their
Final visions on a
Insinuates the forever rock of
