from As Your Eyes Are Somewhat Altered
Trust not the pixies' call,
they will get you up at daybreak
with trills like small birds sing.
You'll be impelled to leave the farmhouse
just as first light hits the frost,
ordinary things will take up fascinating shapes.
The pitchfork you left out last night
looks new, the shaft of ash grown pale
like you had never touched it with your hands.
