weight-heavy grey age-stone
thick-walled hunch-house villages
nurturers of pre-england

a norfolk tornado marred flew to kuwait
a land-air-missile huntress counted the well-worn expected four
got five---friend or destroy
no cancel---no wait---no time---you choose

your child is here
you choose

the navigator's funeral
the rite shock-hearted coarse grief paused
four tornados flew steam low
black crescendo
steam low

one but-one but-one-rose one-rose one-rose-up rose-up up cloud-up high-cloud-up high-up high-up-beyond up-beyond beyond beyond-vision up-beyond-vision beyond-vision vision

grief-heavy grey death-stone
thick hunch-walled silent villages
nurture post-war numb
