Yonder … and Wide

Seek the quarry,
Drag the load
Beat Beauty from
The rare-rock
Then grind her
Into powder blue
With smoothed glass.

Now you have the shock
That will vault,
Ink, bind and bruise
The little-marble,
All-we-have
Earth-rise world,
That will cloak Madonna
And the Judas kiss.

Now, Whether you
Be simple mortal or
Fairy lord, it’s time to
Make your choice:
Where would you wish to
Blaze your infinity trail:
Land?
Language?
Or the sky?
