They put Us far apart

They put Us far apart
As separate as Sea
And Her unsown Peninsula
We signified “These see”

They took away our Eyes
They thwarted Us with Guns
“I see Thee” each responded straight
Through Telegraphic Signs

With Dungeons They devised
But through their thickest skill
And their opaquest Adamant
Our Souls saw just as well

They summoned Us to die
With sweet alacrity
We stood upon our stapled feet
Condemned but just to see

Permission to recant
Permission to forget
We turned our backs upon the Sun
For perjury of that

Not Either noticed Death
Of Paradise aware
Each other’s Face was all the Disc
Each other’s setting saw
