Scattered houses
        spinsters
breasted
       disease
a good God damn
         and huge
  frontier
      painterly grace
            asleep
and anyway
    stupored gray
         angry
             if
because bamboo
      a Jesuit
     forever outlawed
           blurry
   mystery
        naked
    wholly
           less
    the asking
         wishbone
   ashy air
        a rare
aloud
      on loan
