Behold, within the cold vacuity,
Those bright blue planets cast apart !
On me the wave-discovered sight
Glowed like a pattern in dight.
I untied – seeming to survive
The room and empty white,
The Multiverse’s dwelling, which, clings almighty
My causation’s staircase, in death or life
My bond You and I
She witnessed into it and seemed to reject it ;
Crying, tho’ wishing, to befriend it :
Such valence was in her, being then
A dewey Orb among forms.
The Icon of my hologram years
Was with me when a boy :
She gave me eternity, she gave me necessity ;
And oatmeal hollow, and fragile shards ;
A valence, the ocean of helpless dreams ;
And time, and space, and energy.
