anne carson: blended text

(from Sublimes)

You have captured:                     pinned upon
my heart:                                  the wall of my heart is your love
with one glance:                         as one
with one bead:                           as an exile of the kings of royalty
of your eyes:                              my heart
you have something of mine:         a torn thing
again the moon:                          now
the rule:                                    (who knows)
