Effigy effaces
The burnt book and its textual
Crusts of smeared type and
Gold slashes smirched and
Soiled to the edge of belief

The burnt hash as a symbol of
Itself is edible above and beyond
The muck it makes as an object
Of perception

Eighteen shades of black
Shading to bitter root

Flouting of fondest wish
Of divine numeracy
Glass shards scattered
On Yonkers Blvd.
