From the larynx onward

“Language…speak that I may see thee…” –Ben Jonson

What can I say about unsayable things that migrate
from the mouth of a parable speaker to Earth,
from the infinitude? The countless sightless hero
from beginning of body to end of being, though
from being to its opposite that mire of unbeing
from a pool of ones stretching up to the infinitude
from a reflection of me, a reflection of whole others
from which I dare draw selfsame mates and enemies?
