About the Book Walking on Water

Square the circle.
Tranquilize hate,
Stabilize pride,
Hallow love ...
In the fourth dimension.

By gavel, baton,
Bayonet, dollar;
Square the circle,
Calibrate love,
Analyse violet,
Equate faith.

By grass and heroin, napalm and bomb,
By fury white and fury black,
By the myriad butterfly power of youth,
Square the circle.

Walk on water --
By Buchenwald or Tibet
Czechoslovakia or Rhodesia
Harness the zodiac to plough the Milky Way.
