Arachne. No. 2

He Rests. He has Travelled

He Rests. He has Travelled

Watering the red rose of a rich neurosis
Let him settle in a cabin by the sea.
Nine bean rows will he have there, ecstatic apotheosis,
And a hive for the honey-bee.

Inquisitor of ecstasy, at the burning window
Of his inward I entranced,
Leave him that island where the waters worship
At the sands where Ariel danced.

Leave him a childhood. We work
In cities where to all
Whimpers from Moscow and the Alamo
Death's dull call.
