Neither Nor Human

The charlatan tricks heaven
Of her husband, gloats
As the moon mad ghouls
Shriek out of tune
In twanging, clanging delight
At the jangling man
The wrangling man
The hanging man

The crystalline gipsy
In the shadows of the dead
Swinging outstretched
Sounds the ringing iron
The rolling, tolling, sobbing
Groan of rust swells in brute anger
A frantic clamour
The palpitating horror
Of the dying song
