When is the boat? Why the glass city?

When is the boat? Why the glass city?
the chambers echo in the heart,
the hiding place in the storehouse,
the give-away twitch in the temple.

On the glass wall Shirley Temple
giggles from a faraway city.
The strawberries in the house
are strawberries of the heart.

Listen! Someone is at the heart,
someone has broken into the temple,
someone is removing from their house
all the strawberries of the city.

I’m told there is a City of the Heart,
where lives a House in a Temple.
