Cambered Inclinations

These cambered inclinations
Wrest red rain from muscles
Starved strangely now of diction
And broken free of calculation
Proffer this proposition:

“Abdicate these annexed claims
And abandon those distressed designs,
Set to one side those sordid fictions
And renounce this calamitous intent
To that dead space then remit these ashes.”

So hanging now from wayward trees
Are all those incautious suggestions,
Depending like malefactors
From branches of alder
The ground they feed with their shadows.
