from The Lost Canadian, Vol.2… ‘Pursuing The Dream’


 

 

 

 

 

 

Go quickly from this page
there is
nothing you will learn here
which was not
already taken from you
and distributed
to the drunken destroyers
of the city, from whose
pillars you so calmly gazed

Beneath the tree
without understanding, you
gave time to their advance
and general retreat
with the spoils
by moving back and forth
as if you could make an exit
or entrance:
like the hanged man dreaming of heaven
