THE DEVIL WITH THE MINUS SIGN IN HIS RIGHT HAND
As the unexpected world to an angel who slept
Through the seven crucial days is the sudden poem:
"See the abyss and the golden chain pendent,
And the yellow midges there circling the ether.
"Within those rings the radiant jewel alone—
Red, red, and the green richness within.
"But what black thing wings from the lower quadrant?
See where he nears, breaking that timeless bliss!"
