Volume 6

Thantos, the death-plant in the skull
Grows wings and grows enormous.
The herb of the whole system.
Systematically blotting out the anise weed and the trap-door
     spider of the vacant lot.
Worse than static or crabgrass.
Thantos, bone at the bottom. Saint
Francis, that botanist in Santa Rosa
(Bless me now, for I am a plant and an animal)
Called him Brother Death.
