The sky in the east arose creased and awry
The sky in the east was like a beast in a sty
The sky in the east was like the yeast of a sigh
The sky in the east like a feast in a pig sty
The sky in the east leased day to the whole sky
The sky in the east like a wildebeest in the day’s eye
The sky in the east flooded the east with its dye
The sky in the east muddied the priest with a lie
The sky in the east was fleeced and hung out to dry
The sky in the east chose the least easy way to die
The sky in the east made the day out of yeast and mud pie
The sky in the east called the police to the sun’s lay-by
The sky in the east ceased to ask why
The sky in the east broke up, released its bluefly
The sky in the east did the very least to comply
The sky in the east pieced together an alibi
The sky in the east said an arriviste was nearby
The sky in the east creased into a rude reply
The sky in the east was released with a cry
The sky in the east gave out, ceased, began to die
The sky in the east made way for the priest guy
The sky in the east decided at least to try
The sky in the east greased the pan for the pie
The sky in the east ceased its long goodbye

 

The day in the east is Rising now come what may
The day in the east is RISING no matter what you say
The day in the east iS RISING And you can’t make it stay
The day in the east IS RISING AND will not go away
The day in the east iS RISEN And that way will stay
The day in the west wilL SET And go away
The day in the west forget’s everYthing you say
The day in the west is always overtaken this way

    Love this one. Begging to be read out round a roaring fire…

    If this were on video, you’d have to manually cross each line out, emphasizing each as a new start for a first line. Thus could we laugh at the poet, pity the poet, and catch ourselves having shoots of reflectiveness, all a the same time. (Inexplicably, my favorite is “The sky in the east greased the pan for the pie,” although “The sky in the east pieced together an alibi” probably ‘leans in’ more as an actual first line.)
