    if anything…
    by romus simpson


    if anything ever more beautiful than u
    woke me into its earth & ripe morning
    drew day around me so bold & cool that
    an ocean was implicit in the courage of the language
    & the scope of day needing reference
    only fairly to earth moving against the daylit universe
    something that wide i say
    something more immense than vision or hope
    intrinsic as the heart in the body in bed
    planet broad & opaque as love

    it would be a forest rumored to have no end
    a life forever
    a poem cataloging constellations
    a sun whose run is a guess of light in the white light
    a flat earth creating earth & tiling sky
    & tolling each new continent until
    bells were like the blue of sky
    the alluvial window breathing day
    new york from a single stone

    or as freedom is
    not as i understand it
    being who i am poet & pain
    but as god understands it having made eternity
    the unfurling mathematics
    or as god loves & creates infinity to house his love
    or as he is constituent to endless things
    finds his fancy in a window filled house
    his desiring his lush saturn in the firebath dusk
    his lust his loneliness
    what binds him in his infinite skin
    or his sky of eye
    the creator’s context
    what he sees & dreams when he dreams when he sleeps
    if anything ever more beautiful than u
