On the line

               Draw your spliced eye
               toward the hoist
hook with the help of a pulley
               block. Tighten it
               and your ribs lift.

Now guy wires designate the known.
               This wind could move
               mountains? Step out,
shouldering the magnetic pole

               and you control
               all horizons.
Somersault. The line is your spine:
               convex, concave
               as you pursue

the shortest path between two stars.

12.6.1987, Normanby, Dunedin
