Hear the soft bombs of dust
It bursts against us at the chimney mouth,
...
mouth to mouth, the covers
pulled over our shoulders
...
Strong Men, riding horses. In the West
On a range five hundred files. A Thousand. Reaching
From dawn to sunset.
the white-crested fillies of the surge
And the white horses of the windy plain.
For a hundred and fifty years, in the pasture of dead horses,
roots of pine trees pushed through the pale curves of your ribs
...
Those lumbering horses in the steady plough,
On the bare field--I wonder why, just now,
...
Barely a twelvemonth after
The seven days war that put the world to sleep,
Late in the evening the strange horses came.
When his book opens its mouth, the author must shut his.
Curses, not loud but deep, mouth-honor, breath
Which the poor heart would fain deny, and dare not.
Therefore I will not restrain my mouth; I will speak in the anguish of my spirit; I will complain in the bitterness of my soul.
