Ordnance of the Mind
I deploy an ordnance of the mind to counter the adversaries of yours
(That is all of the several yours behind me and the yours to come)
They are hereby nullified and rendered insubstantial.
I take the one love and the one life that are mine and I glorify them
But in the near term I see there is potentiality
Which I extol likewise as I praise the as yet undiscovered year ahead
The fielded Natural History OMG with its water thingy
The bowls of oak with their Blues in Greens
The word fountains in deafening Savernakesies of quietude
The Liddingtons of my heart forever wondered and sniffed
All woven into the unity of my painted fabric and this gravity
Pulling, pulling, ever pulling.
