Look! Be: leap;
(as excerpted by the composer)

Look! Be: leap;
paint trees in flame
bushes burning roar in the broad sky
know your color:
produce that the widenesses be full
and burst their wombs
riot in redness, delirious with light,
swim bluely through the mind
shout green as the day breaks
put your face to the wind
chant as the tomtom hubbubs crash
elephants in the fleshes jungle
reek with vigor
pour your life in a libation to itself
drink from the ripe ground
make children over the world
lust in a heat of tropic orange
stamp and writhe;
stamp on a wet floor
know earth
know water
know lovers
know mastery
