smoke rings round the moon



The merchant builds

a home

with blueprints


and smokes

a finely-shaped cigar


The bird builds his nest

in a tree

overlooking the canopy


and makes

the entire wilderness

his shelter

The juxtaposition of two

The juxtaposition of two lives is very subtle in this poem, which takes a very conversational tone, but the power of the juxtaposition is undeniable and very convincing.

Enjoy effulgent days, and exquisite nights,

unto the exultations of Heaven.
