Haunted and orbed
the moon taunts at passersby
painted with blood
to buy sweet

You were not alleged to die
Not like this, with no word
With no so long, with no kiss

This earth isn't of man
Man is of the earth
    -- dirt to airborne dirt and dust --
In the Amazon guy is earth
Mud and guy are one
River, canoe, financial institution, and man
Share the colour of a lump of clay
Only differing in tone.
