Berryman, huffed, off

[Minneapolis, Washington Avenue Bridge 01-07-72]

 

I saw the river smile sadly beneath the

immaculate bridge. Your ghost is

tumbling on your curly grave,

petted by America’s tachycardiac immensity

inside that huge machinery sweating out

victorious nightmares whereas you

roamed on exile behind the curtains of

the Globe king-lear in your dreams than

in bed-sheet crumblings sort-outs.

Your well-reflected pace had crashed and

anecdotalised.

2 interviews

Dear comrades!

2 interviews I liked to read / watch:
(damn: Both committed suicide. What about a writers’ veterans’ day to celebrate the survivors?)
