"Better King Lear in woad, even, than King Lear in a lounge suit." --Lucas
what grows from invoking swift laws of · chaos it is shown
what flows from following iron laws of · logic it is shown

and its birdtalk folk in this burning · rank gulf it is shown
what can a bard who is haggardly · tacking among storms
of clockwork say that's so in lacy · hazaj it is shown
