Neutral Ground

I went down to Saint James infirmary
they had turned it into a planetarium
she was there in the firmament
a constellation to be named at a date
later when we too were dead

what is the use of naming the chaos
scorpion phoenix sea monster lyre crab

swim toward an attempt at understanding
as if stage four meant more understanding


the cava spilled backward

these words another jar


above the neutral ground
we saw her together

scaling up scaling down from
the stars
