as being nothing

Carol Shillibeer

They shouted and fell
diligently sought the goat
good men and bad being things
rottenness adds a peculiar beauty
upon the inwards, a perpetual statute
the swan, and the pelican, and the gier eagle
ignorance and the thing be hid
bring a lamb, sanctuary for a trespass
mind as being nothing, life is daily wasting
his flesh a rising, a scab,
her flowers upon him he shall be
the cedar wood, and the scarlet, and the hyssop
the faculty which produces
away idle hopes, come to thy own
my face against, without regard to common interest
the perfect principles of art
it is confusion, judgment: thou shalt not
providence or atoms, fortuitous concurrence of things
posthumous fame does not consider
nature; a composition out of the same, no evil for things
change into some part of the universe, that which is sold shall remain
