Ernest Williamson III

The Folly of Amber & Jasper

amber is the gelatin in my own sleep
and jasper coaxes my slums
to birth
future pains which kill
the mendacity of life daily
so as the moon
the gibbous
little as if I were
a mantle larger than its light
I find amber and jasper to be
all that is remiss in art
the seen but uncomprehended.
