I can see the flesh around my eyelids

I can see the flesh around my eyelids,
hear me: what barbaric antiquity
discovered was the spiritus,
hot breaths of being:
the French theorists haven’t yet
surpassed those long-dead
grovelers in the mud,
those magnificent murderous
Greeks. What a rigid mind
have we constructed
these last few toiling centuries.
