(WORK IN PROGRESS)
This one is called "Claire"
Claire has a name we all know
a name we all love
a name we all heed
We think it and we see,
We speak it and she turns,
We hear it and we turn and see her turning
Because she heard it too
Claire! The Greeks had it right
inventing such names with meaning
that races from the mind and explodes and
a thousand meanings – Bright, Shining, Clear!
And it's her name.
This one is called "Ray's mantra"
Went Ray's mantra
Manta Rays of the deep blue sea
Or shallow sea
Even seas that are medium depth
And have rays in them
Ray knew it like he knew his own name…
The rays were in there, his mantra for mantas
mantraing like a repeating mantra about mantas.

This one is called "Death lies naked on my porch"
This one is called "Light of the World"
The dark darkness is dark
It darkens around me
Darker and darker
Until it's really dark
I can't see in this dark
It's too dark to see
In the darkness
Nobody can see anything
except the dark
Oh pulchritudious fate!
Why did you make it so dark so late?
The Greeks had it right,
They used lots of light
So the darkness remains
And I slip on the icy floor
And hurt my elbow
In the dark
This one is called "Meta Meta Four"
A like a B like a C
Like a D
All is like All
is Like none
Like a meta-metaphor
it's like it being like something it isn't
but still being like it it's like the act
of being like it
The likeness is like liking what cannot be liked
or is liked in a way that one thing is like another
But it's only like it
Otherwise it'd be a simile
This one is called "Star Bright"
The stars twinkle
Twinkle like an eye
A starry eye, twinkling
Like a twinkling star
Yet so dull
With blasts of heavenly rays
Look at the stars above
The Greeks had it right
About the stars
And I lay in a blanket
Underneath the stars
And clouds and moon and aeroplanes
This one is called "Yeah, Yeah"
To it all.
