On Faith and the Faithful

(cut into pieces from W. C. Williams' The Orchestra)

Say to them:
'Man has survived hitherto because he was too ignorant to know how to realize his wishes. Now that he can realize them, he must either change them or perish.'

[...]The birds twitter now anew
but a design surmounts their twittering.

It is a design of a man
that makes them twitter.
It is a design.
