the dragon’s tooth held

hovering over him, the eagle

how many ships will

Helen’s white thigh

covered the ground with life

until the mother of Socrates

years and the long roads leading down

twenty steps then count to

and Apollo loved and wept many

that the northern people call Lok and we call

two breaths, five beats of the

he said this is no place for a god

stars, the dead turning

open the chest, remove

of agrimony, of mandrake three

if the whole number be split

the six that circle our sun
