[Ross Bleckner’s]

Entering that cold lit
Turret shell
Spiral,

The way sound follows
The hollow
Wind

To the inner ear,
Must be
Familiar

To all the damned
Who enter
Down

With sulfuric dead silence
Whitening out,
Up,

As each stands hushed
—Critics and
Lovers—

While all around them
Humming wings
Or urns.
