Unmeasured power, incredible passion, enormous craft: no thought
apparent but burns darkly
what are we,
The beast that walks upright, with speaking lips
the ghosts of the tribe
Crouch in the nights beside the ghost of a fire, they try to
This coast crying out for tragedy like all beautiful places,
We are easy to manage, a gregarious people,
Full of sentiment, clever at mechanics, and we love our luxuries.
Sports and gallantries, the stage, the arts, the antics of dancers,
The exuberant voices of music,
all the arts lose virtue
Against the essential reality
Truly men hate the truth; they'd liefer
Meet a tiger on the road.
The mad girl with the staring eyes and long white fingers
Hooked in the stones of the wall,
Unhappy, eagle wings and bleak, chicken brain.
