'I wanted a sense of the early
and late if I could get that clear,
of Willy's datestamps, as in '.. what we all need
is more practice at listening to late Stravinsky' -
an arrangement, his Poisson curve (he's a rainbow)
struck in the year like a coin or a drivers' strike,
as Glenn Miller's moon, single, late,
the lightbacked arc of a fish over the office
tonight. Is it new, Willy's declension, governance, graphed
among the multiple windows, galleys
loose as sheets on a washline? My
safecracker, testing his combinative prowess,
raises his coatcollar, the lighthouse
sweeping over some point at sea. '
