stricken shapes trembling in driven rain 
streaking eyes processional 

distant thunder ripens 
fills mighty lungs 

in meditation 
a great brahm of air 

lightening sears the core 
tinder-brush takes fire 

vitals sizzle and sing 
white shoots cleave the mud 

wattles of the breast crackle 
a bird sings in the cage 

here is a feather
