Take Away

                        --after Jeremy Prynne

This notion that all can be deciphered
            in this sense darkened
            suggests another level of meaning
    independent of the meaning it may suggest.
           As seen from the moon, the small
           gain by night in
           cries between weight and the heavens
                       all language prompting naughts
                       nots knots to the passage
                of now, rattletrap pit-pat
                       sound: how we learn to read
                       in secretive places a
                       yellow raincoat
                                   is said to close
                                   night in times of day
                             carry nothing but the
                                   simultaneous sun
                                   12 lines evinced
                       to sail or flit unbidden
