savorer of `infant clams' and campestris, among the opulence,
`the look of bright everlastingness'
but continue what's become obvious, greens
overlapping soberly, whitening sky,
stubble stalks leaning among the clods, nearby,
and red light fl ickering in the distance, on the blue fl ats
where they're burning off the cattails in the sloughs,
be forsaken?' -- I'm on my way
up to a wind-swept place
of darkness, snow, and some lights, and further on
a granite cave, icy water on its walls
black fl ecked with white and pink, the good
lair dark I dream to; start down fresh from.
