Go through my things
   god knows what you'll find. When I'm not here.
I'm not here, in this poem
I'm in another room, writing praises
            of their loveliness and terror
the ones that dance through my mind
        not endlessly, but to be one at one
                               with them
                           I want to be.
                       I want to be one,
                   I want her to be one
              when the voice begins
         she is, and she dances.
I am the voice. I praise
There is
no mind.
