Approach the corner with caution, with faith.
Tell the seer what you'd like to know. Feel
the message in the sound of the great stretch
he does with his back and hands, under the peal:
Adjust yourself, your plans and your thoughts,
so precious to you that you were nearly lost.
Oppose the risks that are meted out.
Increase the feeling no matter the cost:
In a stretch of the hands, the back, the neck,
the body can tell so, so many things
about the love, the loss, the luck, the steps
in abysses of culture, abysses of wreck:
Untoward action, unseasoned affect,
habitual passions the mind must reject.
