Once upon a time/ a great force compelled/ the earth to coalesce.
And in wake of that force/ just happened to be/ .
“Ready?” boomed thunder./ “Ready? For what?”/ came the reply./ “Oh, I see, you don’t know, do you.../
You’ll carry, you’ll contain,/ you may spill, you may…”/ “Oh. but when?”
And after some time: “For now…”/ And so on with questions/ (Why? How come? What for?)/ For many moons/
until it was decided/ some rite, some rhyme, some ritual/ Would need to be/ conjured to convey/ its truth./
And so — with alabaster glazes; gold flocked, and brimming with empty/
The vessel would retire/ into fire/ and/ finally/ begin/ to/ hold.
