  • Moreover, the Moon ---

    by Mina Loy

    Face of the skies


    over our wonder.


    truant of heaven

    draw us under.

    Silver, circular corpse

    your decease

    infects us with unendurable ease,

    touching nerve-terminals

    to thermal icicles

    Coercive as coma, frail as bloom

    innuendoes of your inverse dawn

    suffuse the self;

    our every corpuscle become an elf.
