Consecration
By Robert M. McAlmon
 
From “Flying”

THE ACHROMATISM of the sky
Alters the adagio tempo of my consciousness.
The avalanche of air inundating me and my plane
Goes out again from me in coruscating graciousness;
And, the dissonance of my unrest soothed,        5
Makes me devout before spaciousness.
There is a débacle of various egos within me,
That refractory memory thrusts before me
Knowing they will return to me with earth.
But for the now on high, all the crevices of my being,        10
Long filled by glutted life, are cleansed;
And I know consecration in eternal ether.
