I spot I spot polyphemus eye spot Unblinking on the window ledge Dapple grey and shades of rust Subtle moth shivers in the shade Skyscrapers dozing in the dusk I spot I spot Polyphemus Eye Spot
Sensing antennae quiver in the moonlight In moth shadows the cool gloom of forest Trees gallows green and sleeping I sense the hawk's downward plunge In a vision unblinking My feathered antennae like exclamations Voiceless lamentations
On the edge of firmament the future's indeterminate
I circle slowly 'round the flame I am watching, I am waiting, with my eyes wide open
The Steel Sky is deepening, The gallows green and sleeping Soon the moth shall turn to dust It's ashes scattered on windy gust
