unto thee i
burn incense
the bowl crackles
upon the gloom arise purple pencils
fluent spires of fragrance
the bowl
seethes
a flutter of stars
a turbulence of forms
delightful with indefinable flowering,

for in the ambiguous faint aspirings
the indolent frail ascensions,

of thy low

of thy beauty,my heart discovers thee
