Don't read much now: the dude
Who lets the girl down before
Almanacked, their names live; they
Have slipped their names, and stand at ease,
Or gallop for what must be joy,
Do memories plague their ears like flies?
They shake their heads.
A serious house on serious earth it is,
In whose blent air all our compulsions meet,
But superstition, like belief, must die,
And what remains when disbelief has gone?
wondering, too,
When churches fall completely out of use
Cut grass lies frail:
Brief is the breath
Mown stalks exhale,
What can be said,
Except that suffering is exact, but where
Desire takes charge, readings will grow erratic?
All the unhurried day
Your mind lay open like a drawer of knives.
But o, photography! as no art is,
Faithful and disappointing!
