From It's go in quiet illumined grass lands

Separation of space sky rung

O

sun there that is outside and outside

itself

one's

walking rose only and there outside

rose O

at side of sky on its vertical space

separates

     comparing the mind to magnolias

or to sky, because one sees.

     but comparing people's actions to sky

or to war to moon outside? is in that space

     then

     apprehend

     behavior-evening – ferocity even

from just one – where there was no reason

     bewildering – doesn't seem

'bewildering' if it's huge in multitude.

     indentation so that they're even

one to evening – is no behavior-evening

                any event a random space
