    Everything we don’t understand
    is explained
    in Art
    The Sun
    beats inside us
    The Spirit courses in and out
    of us

    A circling transbluesency
    pumping Detroit Red inside, deep thru us
    like a Sea
    & who calls us bitter
    has bitten us
    & from that wound
    pours Malcolm
