The Peacock, for his April show,
The Greatest Magic Show On Earth,
will make the Building disappear
in front of twenty million eyes.
The hand is quicker than the eye.
The mind suspects the glass of show.
The night is cold, and so appears
the form of loss, the form of earth.
Broadcast round the round of earth,
electronically to our eyes,
the beveled Building reappears
to end the reassuring show.
The show on earth gives us two words,
one for the ears, one for the eyes.
