Hymn

Poetry “creates anew the universe,
after it has been annihilated in
our minds by the recurrence of im-
pressions blunted by reiteration.”

                                    –Shelley

Tell me the old, old story.
Tell me zhe old, old story.
Tell me the old, olz ztory.
Telzzme zhe old, old storz.
Tell mezzhe olzzzold zzory.
Telzzzzzzze ozz, olzzstory.
Tezzzmezzzzzolzzzoldzztozz.
Tezzzzzzzze ozzzzozzzzzzzz.
Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

–April 11, 1987
