Our state—of books, condition, the body politic—

Is disrepaired, or worse, and wanting light to spill

Past veils, the banks of secrecy (chadors, Swiss laws,

And airy fabrication: all the latent bric-

Some ancient honey fungus, a continental shelf

For aims, designs. The world is tired of itself.
