for all the poets who are haunted by the words we cannot write

no rest for the unwritten

the trees are whispering

whispering

whispering just as the moon scintillates

upon still water

upon still water,

upon still water, wavering

wavering in lilting lyrics

wavering in lilting lyrics incomprehensible

to the sound shafts of cattle.

bark is stripped away

bark is stripped away to be carved in these

forsaken languages

forsaken languages no eyes shall be set upon

no eyes shall be set upon;

it is with the eyes of

it is with the eyes of the heavens

that these words

that these words are not written

for this string

for this string of elegiac hymns

are forbidden.

and this forest of altercation

and this forest of altercation is bemused

for this scandal of heresy

we poets shall have no rest

we poets shall have no rest for the unwritten.

// hymn
