I look; morning to night I am never done with looking.

Looking I mean not just standing around, but standing around
as though with your arms open.

Like the nibbling, tinsel-eyed fish; the unlooping snake.
Like goldfinches, little dolls of gold fluttering around the corner of the sky

of God, the blue air.
