Between the roots blood welled,
flowing onwards to Mankind,
and it looked as hard as Porphyry in the darkness.

His steps ate up the path in huge bites
without chew-ing: his hands hung,
clumsy and tight, from the falling folds,
and no longer aware of the weight-ess lyre,
grown, into his left side,
like a rose-graft on an olive branch.
