A Longhouse Birdhouse: RE-READING GEORGE OPPEN ~

Waking Who Knows

 

the great open

doors of the tall

buildings and the grid

of the streets the seed

is a place the stone

is a place mind

will burn the world down alone

and transparent

will burn the world down tho the starlight is

part of ourselves
