STRUCTURE AND SURPRISE

If—the facts 
are all 

plot—and
the plot, simply details,

and if 
words are just hollow magic

tricks to make the wind more
reliable and appear more 
solid than it really is,

and—what if?
even our bravest 

intentions
to be totally 
literary—only

are shards?
of some shattered shared
soul of a soundless-in-vast-perpetuity universe,

which moves forever 
toward frozen oblivion,
without ever really changing shape—

Then what?—what's left? in the 
landscape, I wonder,
to survey.

I see—only

epiphany!—crumbling 
architecture, yes,
but some 
pretty 

cool gargoyles leftover.
