Stone weighting my palm
has sprung a cathedral
walking in the flesh of its surpassing grace
groin-vaulted and high as
no bird ever escaped to soar this
there is no blood
stone cannot make the bird.

I love this poem
The subtle intracacies of rhythm in this poem are mind boggling. My guess is that C. Murray plays an instrument.
