Letter from a Muse

I, drawing letters to twist thoughts

letters to feed the slackening storm

letters sewn on the sleeve of a good man

letters to direct the dissection of stone

I, drawing letters to define and inform

letters to hone the slivering bone

letters drawn from an unobjectionable pleasure

letters to tether the thought to the form.


And, he imagines the place where the letters began

farther away now and not by his hand,

For I was a fire in some clever imagination

but I, drawing letters from what I could find,

I thought of the ideal: six things I did bind

made of felt, made of bone, made of water and thread,

made of hide and of wind and of all things dead.
