Little Known Facts of Literature: Milton's East End Roots

Earth

I

Crystallized eye, you
Cut through space like a diamond,
Scratch the glassy mask.

II

Punching the darkness,
Hurl your lithium light as
A bottled message.

III

To read you is to
Disallow your liquid voice -
Stifle still the moth.

IV

And so we leave this
Place of clear water mine own
Sapphire solution.
