The Universe

I open my fist and let the Universe

Slip from between my casual fingers.

The sun, the moon, all land, stars and seas

Behold! I leave you to your own despair.



I shut my eyes tighter than against my worst nightmare;

My eyes are to rid of their favourite dreams.

Dreams cannot do them fair justice

When they must alone retire.



Unconfined, unsettled, wild

I must rise and break from all set rhymes

My only poem within me

Now in a wooden crate set apart

And coiled close in that which is at once

All and one.
