Musical Chairs

who can rescind it, and who can return it
a light brilliantly dark
who has been uprooted, root with branches, down to the sacred bone
outpouring all, completely emptyhanded, giving all
where even holy heroes fear to tread
who goes there
playing musical chairs
in the deep deep twilight zone set aside
casting letters like candy kisses from the court of many colors
who goes there
reconstructing caverns in the heart of machpelah
riding the eternal flame that flies
with troops of tropes unnumbered
