TWO EYES IN THE EARTH
glance up at me from hardened lava
surrounded by scattering of loose rocks.
How far down you go a mile or two?
If I drop a tiny pebble in you
will I hear a splash or an echo?
or will you spew forth volcanic fire,
a dragon's ire from the belly of earth?
O Stone Man did a glance from a Gorgon
turn your flesh to stone? Speak if you can.
O Mudman of Papua and New Guinea
what are you doing here in Hawaii?
O Moon Man can you tell me the taste
of the Elixir of Immortality?
O Earth Man a masked god dancing
on coals of fire, a shaman inducing
me to trance my body shattered in
the spirit world my eyes now
ten thousand and everywhere I turn
birds, flowers, and trees all I see is me!
