Eros's castle
		of seven red stones
		(seven on either side,
		seven behind )
		built for the Soul:
		she lives in the ring
		of flame. Four
		trees shot up
		after the stones fell.
		Four blue flames
		leapt up,
		their heads touching.
		The duplicity of love,
		you, who obscure the imagery,
		neither divine and human,				
		Babel of our minds,
		Chaos of our loves,
		--I will step into the fire myself--
		Phanes, the light-bearer,
		Hermes, the envoy;
		when the fiery ring vanished,
		it disclosed 
		Eros and Chaos, brothers.
