All hallows
All holy
All sacred
All souls, drifting in ether and
melody
Listen!
move with deep ambition
to command the living through all channels.
Stop broiling ranting of your wars
just for this instant:
Listen!
Hear desperate matter between,
holding, securing us,
breaking.  Like ice under steam.
Spirit escapes with no tether,
no purpose, no solid sphere
to cherish memory.
Listen!  Hear, all hallows,
all sacred vessels, all poets
of binding, protecting rhymes.
Extend unbridled wisdom as element,
as air that clarifies our minds,
teaching sad mankind to heal
before all chance
is gone.
