___________________________________What once was want
___________________________________Is living dream—
___________________________________And richest cream.
___________________________________With animated inspiration,
___________________________________I am alive.
__________________What once was want
__________________Is hope unfurled—
__________________My pavement mapped out
__________________Through the world.
__________________No rainbow tangent thwarts me;
__________________Divine intention is my strength.
What once was want
Is now desire;
My ear pried downward
Toward the liar,
Tell me sweet secrets;
Cut short my arduous journey.
___________________What once was want
___________________Is fervent need—
___________________Dog on my heels—
___________________A kitten treed.
___________________Green waves of salvation
___________________Became my newfound peril.
__________________________________What once was want
__________________________________Is holed and hollow—
__________________________________Desiccated by charms
__________________________________I chose to swallow.
__________________________________With poison pacified,
__________________________________I fell asleep.
