Eagle Breath of Heaven

The eagle takes heaven full-breath.
A conqueror, below,
State within bracelets mundane,
Is at the gate for all.

The victory’s hand —
Stands down a troop
Shooting up glitter
Of polished blades;

Glare, ruby standards
In memento
Of gold-excepted
Purple knit chest.

Air high, a flash marmoreal
Beams the skies in last heave —
A book of material maps
Cannot tell a soul’s way.

The enclosed piece-by-piece analysis works a criterion to embrace the epsilon, predicate structure, vowel contour, phonemics, person reference in abstract thought, and altogether stylistic coherence. The result supports doubt on fascicle originality. There always is the simple question as well: do we believe Emily Dickinson tried to tell about very exceptional Bees, Ears, or Birds, so peculiar that you write them with capital letters?
