Mightier than the Sword

Crystal thrust of a great spear deeper than the sparkling ocean-galaxy

Pinpoint apex of an iceberg running into the oldest singing dream

Yet you wield this weapon so carelessly; your lazy tired scrying

These meandering wine-dark rivers which you spill onto

My milk-white plains, marble-cold and endless forest

Don’t you know the fury clenched in your fingers?

This strange ebon fire; star-blood condensed

Contained in a slender limpid shell whose

Fierce brightness has been forgotten

By the screens which have made

Us ghosts let my sinews grasp

Again anew this engine that

Launched humanity into

Its past its futures its

Wars and pieces

Let me never

Forget this

Ache to
