ii variations on song

i.
do you look the weeping weapon
in the eye     do you stand in stead
of mirth     can we speak
the sated vowel as birth     as threaded
song     did you peel the sung of heaven’s ceiling?

ii.
the poem makes exception
rule     the creed of gift
crasses by unsung as we
collect mistakes     hoof
prints of past songly
cast as exceptions     which
the poem rends     to correct
