Hymn


To put one over
                        on
         one.
 

     *

One is everywhere
lured

into branching again
in miniature:

espaliered chorus.
 

     *

"Glory be to him,"
sing voices
that can't quite dissolve

in tears,
as mist.
 

     *

Incremental hum.

Collapse on cue.

Praise Sisyphus.
