    Cairo Jag

    Shall I get drunk or cut myself a piece of cake,
    a pasty Syrian with a few words of English
    or the Turk who says she is a princess--she dances
    apparently by levitation? Or Marcelle, Parisienne
    always preoccupied with her dull dead lover:
    she has all the photographs and his letters
    tied in a bundle and stamped Decede in mauve ink.
    All this takes place in a stink of jasmin.

    But there are the streets dedicated to sleep
    stenches and the sour smells, the sour cries
    do not disturb their application to slumber
    all day, scattered on the pavement like rags
    afflicted with fatalism and hashish. The women
    offering their children brown-paper breasts
    dry and twisted, elongated like the skull,
    Holbein's signature. But his stained white town
    is something in accordance with mundane conventions-
    Marcelle drops her Gallic airs and tragedy
    suddenly shrieks in Arabic about the fare
    with the cabman, links herself so
    with the somnambulists and legless beggars:
    it is all one, all as you have heard.

    But by a day's travelling you reach a new world
    the vegetation is of iron
    dead tanks, gun barrels split like celery
    the metal brambles have no flowers or berries
    and there are all sorts of manure, you can imagine
    the dead themselves, their boots, clothes and possessions
    clinging to the ground, a man with no head
    has a packet of chocolate and a souvenir of Tripoli. read more »

    Siege Of Vienna Raised By John Sobieski

    Oh, for a kindling touch from that pure flame
    Which ministered, erewhile, to a sacrifice
    Of gratitude, beneath Italian skies,
    In words like these: 'Up, Voice of song! proclaim read more »

    I Listen To Istanbul

    I listen to Istanbul, my eyes closed:

    To Sydney

    NOT thine where marble-still and white
    Old statues share the tempered light
    And mock the uneven modern flight,
    But in the stream read more »

    O thou newcomer who seek’st Rome in Rome
    And find’st in Rome no thing thou canst call Roman;
