Der Blinde Junge

The dam Bellona
littered
her eyeless offspring
Kriegsopfer
upon the pavements of Vienna
 
Sparkling precipitate
the spectral day
involves
the visionless obstacle
 
this slow blind face
pushing its virginal nonentity
against the light
 
Pure purposeless eremite
of centripetal sentience
 
Upon the carnose horologe of the ego
the vibrant tendon index moves not
 
since the black lightening desecrated
the retinal altar
 
Void and extinct
this planet of the soul
strains from the craving throat
in static flight upslanting
 
A downy youth's snout
nozzling the sun
drowned in dumfounded instinct
 
Listen!
illuminati of the coloured earth
How this expressionless "thing"
blows out damnation and concussive dark
 
Upon a mouth-organ
