The Abduction
When a Halley’s Comet was Passing Through
The Layers after the Last Dynasty
At that End of Summer, Father and Son
The Dark and the Fair
Sitting in the Long Boat in the King of the River
Quarreling over the Science of the Night
At that night, the Portrait of Hornworm:
Autumn Lamentation was the Single Vision
The Round Trip of the Long Boat came to where
The two Snakes of the September
Dangling head-down, entwined in a brazen love-knot
In the Testing-tree
Believe it or not
They were the Master and Mistress
Seeing that, An Old Cracked Tune rose
Between the Father and Son
