A poem lumbers, gathers grace
A patch and piecemeal monster 
                                        To the threnody
Of a blind man’s flute
Feeling, in the air’s bird shape
An evasion and escape
From the demands of its creator
Until, in the misunderstandings 
Of other people’s mouths
In the arctic fury
Torn apart
