This is the six o'clock cry that draws the sun from its bed:
Apollo, I have a fierce desire to be intimidated. This is because a brilliant
mind is refreshing-----more so than the water from the highest mountain,
the deepest porcelain well.
I would gladly spend my life at their feet, listening to their mutterings,
coaxing the visions from their sleep. I would split figs in half, fill the
crevices with wine and gold, offer them on a bed of white fern. I would
sew silk pouches to separate their shadows.
Flood this land with light and dispell our pain.
