A LETTER FROM HOME


From the Ides of May,
have I send a letter to be compassed
before the end to a start.
Be assumed of all glass eclipse in-ink,
of the reason to reason and reason to kill
the in exactable mind.

We have murdered something,
counting and cloaking the candor of our
hearts for no just precept.
Comely task, forgotten.
Here fore divulged and ever distrusted
with judiciousness.
I gnash in an inter-course.
Devise in cogitation as unveiled to
brother Paul.
A full inchoate so full
approaches listener.
approach crooks, pariahs, thieves.
approach, all strangers.


From the start of the next ides to the end
of the next ides, I wait for your reply.

When congratulating yourselves, try to send
it home, for I am in home and not Rome.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
