Trees dance in orchestral madness
to keep the sadness skyward
huddled below
the luminescent glow of a weary
a hallowed goodbye;

round comes the trend of
harpsichordal delight,
plight, and blunder;
building, effacing the dormant
slumber of
multiplying by seven
dividing by four
further closing the door at
armiesí face,

with a signature line
signed and limp pen
for the next stately

keeping sadness skyward
and I don't know what this is "about" but I love that line, in an awe-struck uncritical child-like kind of way, which, I find, is the best way to appreciate poetry sometimes...

a possibility I sensed was that this narrates the process of a poem being written, or rather, writing itself in to being... I'm probably way out but I liked that possibility a lot. I am so glad to have read those first two lines today. great stuff.
