v word ekes

i - the most beauteous of rots
           clasps the yellow roots of sun
      
ii -  in the absence of song, should the 
	   syllables falter, there is dirge

iii - in the absence of humor, fear 
           follicles thread a dearness 

iv - not since morning sought knife 
           did the word begin to cut water

v - what the grasp of heaven misses
           earth catches as wish & loam -
