The Goldsmith Variation

     the garden  hotel
     through a woman & hidden grandmother victorian burning
     was it her real
     looking for eaves  walking
                               in god's laboratory

     & she must name (to finish) millstones
                              has room under the tornado
     transformation through threshing
                              in the octagonal field
     she is in the mastodon town
                                   the next woman naked
               whirls through cattle
     her baby underwater
                         closeted the road
     an octopus transited
                         the dapple-gray girl
     she has fat
                         stones stall
                         her owl turns foul
                                 by sleep
     flame bell
               resort high
                glass meditating
                    calling her down
     eve taps god
     the name shoulder appears
                         up & down orders
                                             first last
                    time garden walks



graven images of babar
in the apartments of babar
have a future and babar
is spherical like pascal


at the beginning
mother & father
created babar
& all the stars


the dancer can't step twice
into the admirable
very admirable
booties of the great babar


plus babar minus babar
do not say such oppositions
can be swung to give a semblance
sweetened wry pragmatic semblance
of an instance of babar


the only way forward
as it now appears
is through misty babar
o seductive illusion
of the absence
of the loving
