Loud Poem: Firmament
Blue, a luminous cloud. Sun
of incandescent red, reticulated, faint,
That angels swim channels
of darkness between buoys: elliptical,
ancillary; orbit's solitude.
Astrographer, no dreamer exhumed
black chart's vacuum retrograde.
Awareness: an invention.
Things appear saturate authentic,
moon-infused, annual. Belief, two-thirds
and up of student understanding.
Game summarily surface, indisputably
white, found nascent, impracticable.
Whose perverse, man-encompassed leaning
soul-supposes us? We demonstrate
dreaming: sweet, sweet, annihilation.
Based on Man Ray's 1924 painting "Lautgedicht"
(from an exercise posted by Frances Leviston)
