addressing earless skulls

is a vocation only God could curse one with--

there's the poet--there's the mystic--there's the saint--

they stumble along howling on street corners--derided

by all who pass--well let all of them have their say--

no matter what mouth issues the Word--soothsayer and mob alike

hear nothing but their own vanity--and the victims of their tirades

are nothing more than skyward glancing earless skulls
