Jean Day
from The Literal World


"Doubts form a system."


Doubts form a system.

The bible seller rings a bell
The bob of the plumb changes the nature
of the experiment. The Concord will flow
fancy its drapery
                                     but not all
language is good.
Certainly, disguise a dress as the body
that was once a person. She'll tell you
the soul is everywhere as sure a thing for me
as an errand dawning fugitive
over X as wide as
                         X. That is, stupendousness
unteaching ebullience
