1 Poem by Ezra Miles

The
 Whole

 The
 man climbs down
from
 a ladder
back
 to earth–

 just
 a phrase, just
a
 phrase singing
through
 his ears

 and
 music is
such
 a gift, wherever
It
 occurs.

 He
 remembers
little
 of what
he
 saw out

 over
 the sky. How
could
 he? When
he
 was away

 he
 became
a
 diamond
that
 shone as water

 in
 a glass
like
 water in the sea
as
 though he was

 heat.
 He stepped
back
 to the earth
with
 both feet.
