"The Starry Sky" of Wyndham Lewis

who raised
these rocks of human mist
 
pyramidical survivors
in the cyclorama of space
 
In the
austere theatre of the Infinite
the ghosts of the stars
perform the "Presence"
 
Their celibate shadows
fall
upon the aged radiance
of suns and moons
 
----- The nerves of Heaven
flinching
from the antennae
of the intellect
----- the rays
that pierce
the nocturnal heart
The airy eyes of angels
the sublime
experiment in pointillism
faded away
 
The celestial conservatories
blooming with light
are all blown out
 
Enviable immigrants
into the pure dimension
immune serene
devourers of the morning stars of Job
 
Jehovah's seven days
err in your silent entrails
of geometric Chimeras
 
The Nirvanic snows
drift ----- ----- -----
to sky worn images
