Not like Dante
            Discovering a commedia
                                  Upon the slopes of heaven
I would paint a different kind
                            of Paradiso
in which the people would be naked
                                          as they always are
                                                                  in scenes like that
                            because it is supposed to be
                                                    a painting in their souls
but there would be no anxious angels telling them
              how heaven is
                                        the perfect picture of
                                                        a monarchy
              and there would be no fires burning
                            in the hellish holes below
in which I might have stepped
            nor any altars in the sky except
                                        fountains of imagination

The formatting is not quite right, here. Due to typographic differences....
