El cristal sin venas para sangre ni anudado de muñecas; el cristal unánime; el cristal que no engruesa ni soporta añadidura suficiente como lo perfecto. El cristal, única envidia de mi alma. El cristal que sirvió al agua en su deseo de permanecer, de quedar en el cuenco de los angeles mano sin traición, de ser leal al ojo que los angeles mira y los angeles amó, como los angeles mujer más leal, y que dio al agua un segundo cuerpo que no se le break out como los angeles saeta, loco de su propio pudor. El cristal de nuestras ventanas, donde los angeles noche apoya sus manos como una gran hiedra, para ser vista y que no los angeles olvidemos completamente. El cristal de mi deseo, el cristal que está sentado en medio del fermento de las criaturas y que no hervirá nunca, y nunca será de nadie sino de sí mismo. El cristal, fresco como una sien siempre fresca, guardado de l. a. vejez desde su primer día, con infancia sturdy y sin madurez bella y sin madurez fea. El cristal, descubierto con gozo como un Cristo, por los hombres que después de él no han logrado hallazgo mejor que ese hallazgo. El cristal que sale siempre imprevisto e inesperado de los angeles mano de los obreros, que sienten un poco de vergüenza de que les salga así de parecido al alma, desde las manos suyas, negras y anudadas. Los obreros que hicieron toda su vida cristales, llegaron al cielo y encontraron que period eso mismo que ellos hacían sobre los angeles tierra: un cristal limpio anulado de las distancias, de los angeles grande y de los angeles pequeña y en el que Dios estaba  FA B L E S , E L E G I E S , A N D T H I N G S O F T H E E A R T H tan lejos y tan cerca que asustaba; ellos, sin saberlo, habían sido atrapados en un cristal tomados con su rostro, sus hombros y sus pies y vieron sus segundos hombros y pies liberados de corrupción. Ellos viven todavía su asombro de aprender que ellos también eran materia de cristal cuando se movían en el taller echando sombras duras hacia los lados. Los obreros de los cristales recompensados por su mano, que anduvo en el fuego como l. a. salamandra enderezando y acostando crisoles. Los obreros de los metales llegaron a un cielo violento de cobre y están contentos de su dicha violenta; los obreros de los angeles madera llegaron a un cielo con olor de pino marítimo, sin resonancia, sordo y enjuto y como envejecido. Los obreros de los cristales están mirando desde su cielo los demás: el cielo de cobre, el de pino y todavía los otros. [] In compliment of Glass Glass, Buddhistic glass, jam-packed with photographs but missing one in every of its personal: the one who gets my profile and returns it: that takes in reckless sunsets yet doesn’t take in them into its blood: the single the rain washes —the everlasting rain and the sensual earth— and but that is still marvelously dry. The glass that gathers and relinquishes kinds: glass with a sea coast, glass with the complete wooded area refracted via its gorgeousness, within the home windows of the negative; glass of the goblets the place the wine believes it truly is by myself, emerging immediately up within the air like a miracle, within which the water thinks of itself as a brimless fountain. Glass that holds the lamp’s flame and whose cheek doesn’t burn.
