The moon they made their own attendant ghosts,
Which led them back to angels, after death.

They throw around their shoulders cloaks that flash
Like a great shadow's last embellishment.

Extinguishing our planets, one by one,

We knew each other and of each other thought,

Except for that crown and mystical cabala.

WALLACE STEVENS, "The Auroras of Autumn"

It glistens with various yellows,
Citrons, oranges and greens
Flowering over the skin.

WALLACE STEVENS, "Study of Two Pears", The Palm at the End of the Mind: Selected Poems and a Play
