Pilgrim


I went away
to weaken The,
strengthen A,
Zeitgeist,
and largely colored The,
as A was largely lost,
never having been enough,
deficient in what replaced it,
and like me,
weak in modern stuff.

At a locational shrine,
I rubbed a type
who does not seek
a rub-off of magic,
but is it, is that shrine,
embodies it,
and is rubbed by those
for whom the locational stuff
of place
proves not soft enough.

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
