“I Will Surely Hide Myself”

“I will surely hide myself from myself”
And the universe bubble sank into perplexity
And the houses on the hill
And the motionless trucks on the dirt road
And the radio towers and electric poles
Stood still in their dumb contentment
Beneath a bleached sky.

Open the pomegranate of your mouth
And let me count your pomegranate teeth,
Your red pomegranate-juice eyes flash
As you flash the staff of Moses
Upon a promontory whose wind
Blows with an unceasing strength
The ether of a hidden mind.
