Teaser:

The Library Eye

the blossoming lamp
in the print
prevails like a huge
dark blue peacock
on the almond rug beyond the edges
of the priestly earth
like the monastery of the oral world
through the world

the library eye
surviving the huge blue peacock
on the almond rug
attitude

combats my catastrophe
that my loss of the self carries on
and so the change of my name
in the library eye
like the monastery of the oral world
beginning at the same pace
I begin
beginning me beyond the edges of the almond rug
