Complications

Come praise Apollo bright,
Who prickled a thick brow,
Briefly as lambent light:

Sufficient though to cause
A remorseless shuffling
Across dry plains to pause;

Instinctual eyes
Lift from predator, prey,
To puzzle at vacant skies;

Behind a brutish face,
Unfathomable
Complexity to take place.

--Walter Donway, "Touched By Its Rays"
