--Joe Safdie

I smoke marijuana to return
                  to the level of the stones —
or if not their splendid
       geological history
at least the surrounding
       shrubs and grasses
                  dancing in place —

and that was the only secret
       to his music —
the real Orphics
       weren't so quick to imagine
                  a way out of the world —
as the story has it
       this is it
