Gress to the glade and grimly grind the grist;
crunch with the crowns, crush the kernel, create
— no, release a repressed rumpled rind of the real,
fluttering, flattened, fluxuant, full;
preventings perturb this principia — pause —
house the hale, hail the heart, halt the harrows,
marr the moulds, mend the mind, mull the morrows.
